Looking at the Kiwix app for Android, it doesn't
seem to have full-text
search within articles (unless I missed it). I assume that this was left
out of the Android version for performance reasons.
Don't assume, ask Emmanuel (cc Offline-l).
If I understand correctly, you're talking of small selections of
articles (hundreds or thousands). Making an index for tens of GB of text
takes hours, so Kiwix doesn't always make one (on desktop, you usually
download the pre-made index). But for few articles, the problem is
easier (and one can also reduce compression).
In general, I have no idea what it means that "zero team starts to think
about pre-loaded content": sounds a lot like reinventing Kiwix, which
would be a disastrous idea. :)
