I'm very proud to announce the release of our new tool: warc2zim.
Warc2zim is a command line tool for GNU/Linux and macOS which allows to
convert a WARC file to a ZIM file. WARC being a widely used storage
format of the archive world, warc2zim offers new opportunities to reuse
WARC stored data and benefit of the whole feature set of the ZIM file
format and readers like Kiwix.
The tool has been achieved with the strong collaboration of the
Webrecorder team. It is one milestone of a bigger project called Zimit,
a project we run we the sponsoring of the Mozilla Foundation.
The ZIM created using that process works slightly differently than the
traditional ones (the ZIM specification is formally respected). We are
currently running an effort to update all the Kiwix readers, but it
already works well with Kiwix Serve.
The tool is distributed at:
More news to come about warc2zim and Zimit in January 2020.
Happy offline reading!
