Small Wikipedia

Small Wikipedia is a little project for offline wikipedia browsing with a moderate footprint and minimal dependencies

It used to run off XML dumps in old version, starting ~2005. These days, XML dumps don't nearly have enough information. However, there's now ZIM, and smallwp works with ZIM files, but with fewer dependencies and less crazy web modernism; it also still works with poython 2

Small Wikipedia requires a working Python installation (versions 2.5-2.7) Check out the README.
