This is a great initiative. I wonder if this would be something worth working on in one of the upcoming hackathons. There is one in Berline in March; if there was a group that would be interested in working specifically on this and can go that could be really cool!

The Berlin Hackathon takes place from June 1-3. So there is still a little more time. (


There is also a hackathon before Wikimania every year; that might be a little more realistic timeframe :)

Hi Adam,

I've been using Tiddlywiki ( to have a local personal wiki of my own.
Its biggest advantage is that the whole thing is in 1 single HTML file which you can take around with you. It has all the wiki syntax, custom html formatting between <html></html> tags, search, automatic backup/save, tags... a lot of features. It's editable on Firefox and in browsers where it's not editable, it's at least viewable.

It can't embed images into itself, but can display and link to local files which you store in  the same folder or subfolder etc.
Check it out. Maybe we can mix the technologies or import one to the other.

If I can re-open this thread, I am very interested in moving towards a
read-write offline platform.  After helpful feedback from people in this
community, I have decided to start two wikis in the hope of a collaborative
implementation, (content transcluded below)



Offline reader software packages lack the ability to edit. The wiki concept should not be abandoned even in this seemingly marginal use case. Collaboration becomes possible from any remote situation, really interesting applications include a small community's school contributing back to Wikipedia, or scientists who use a wiki to coordinate their work.


Note that these approache are exclusive.
* Browser-based editing saves to an HTML5 cache
* Alternative to mediawiki page rendering
* Edit mode for Kiwix
