@Legoktm Thank you for your solution proposal. How would that behave if users want to download an image file? Would that mean that they get a file name with something like hash_value.jpg ?

I have open a ticket related to this here https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T199140

After having migrated to nginx (from apache), it seems to work!?!?!

@Aklapper Yes, you can close the ticket, there is nothing more I can do on my side.

I just go an email with subject "482 Wiki-offline-reader-l moderator request(s) waiting". Please remove me from the list of owners (see my last comment).

@MarcoAurelio I would be more comfortable if the messages were kept in an web available archive.

@bd808 perfect, will remember for next time. Thx.
@bd808 It works now, and if I understand right you have restarted the webservice on enwp10 side itself? Do you confirm? What is the exact command you have run?
Apr 14 2018
I confirm the problem but I have almost no clue why it does not work. I do not have touched anything on the system recently. On the other side, I'm not sure how the stuff should work as I do not have built it myself.

Thank you all for the quick and adapted answer. It works well and we finally have been able to create the ZIM of ba.wikibooks.org successfully.

I have archive the openzim (related) projects on phabricator. So basically, what is needed on the mirror, is also to archive it there... whatever it means removal or close all tickets/PR (I have moved/merged them) and put the project in read-only.

The idea has evolved a bit. Here it is how it looks like now:
Issue moved to https://github.com/openzim/zim-tools/issues/6
I changed the status, this has been implemented.
The whole bug has been moved here:
Ticket moved to https://github.com/openzim/libzim/issues/73
This has been fixed (a long time ago)
Should be fixed soon, Bug has been migrated to https://github.com/openzim/zim-tools/issues/5
Ticket moved to https://github.com/openzim/zim-tools/issues/4. Might be fixed next week.
Nov 4 2017
The whole compilation system has been changed (we use now meson/ninja) for the libzim. I suspect this bug is not valid anymore therefore. Please reopen it if needed.
This is currently almost finished and will be merged to git master within a week.
The review process is finally almost done and this will be merge to git master within a week. Sorry for the so long delay.

This has been fixed AFAIK.
This finally has been fixed by introducing Xapian to manage a list of title.

@Mholloway yes, of course.

@Mholloway OK :( It's available on recent versions of Ubuntu, so it is also probably for Debian.
Please do not assume this for any feature, let us discuss this together before if possible.
I confirm, currently audio and video are treated together.
Here is the solution we are currently developing at openZIM/Kiwix. https://github.com/openzim/zimfarm. As far as I can see, this would fit to your needs. We plan to release a first beta in a week (fingers crossed).
Why not using a standard like OPDS? The WMF is granting development to develop OPDS in Kiwix (both client/server side)...
Why creating a fork? Please collaborate and make PRs. This is how opensource works?
What is the problem with libgumbo-dev? Would not be an option to adopt and help to finish quickly a first version of https://github.com/openzim/zimfarm?
I see you have a tight agenda, but there is in the (Wikimedia) community people who have been working for a decade on this, have an agenda, know-how, tools and regular meetings on this. You should talk to together "before re-inventing the wheel".
I'm not sure exactly what should be done here... in particular what is an "interceptor". But the kiwix-lib already provides a method to load a random article.

Yes, please. My multiple labs instances run out of space in /var and this basically blocks "dpkg". As non-puppet expert, this took me a bit of time to figure out what to do to solve this pb. If I have a look to the solution Mozilla has implemented, this sounds quite trivial.
Jun 17 2017
Just want to confirm that thx to this work we have been able to support video/audio in ZIM files for Kiwix.
We have achieved thanks to various feedbacks from the WMF developers to get something similar to the WMF mobile output in ZIM files. That said, our code is full of hacks and I predict might be relatively costly to maintain over time.

This has been fixed in Xapian 1.4.2.

@Anomie Thank you for the quick answer and clear explanation.
Apr 24 2017
FYI, Kiwix has published a first version of a Web app on the Chrome Web Store
Apr 19 2017
@atgo Thx for asking. It's not as this is not formally a part of the grant. That said it's pretty obvious that having a mobile friendly rendering for ZIM files is pretty essential to offline offering.
Apr 13 2017
@ssastry @cscott @Arlolra We are pretty much stuck by using Parsoid to create a nice - mobile friendly - offline version of our Mediawikis because of that bug and a few other ones (see related bugs). @Skylsmoi is pretty much in standby and Kiwix investment in that feature is put in danger. I would be really thankful for your expertise to help us to find a path to make offline user also enjoy a nice responsive layout.

@cscott Thx for confirming my feeling.

@chasemp I have shrinked the whole stuff to ~50GB, it will take few months more to be able to shrink it more. It that good?
@Aklapper @Eugene233 On our side this is still pretty important even if we have no focus on this due to lack of resources. I have posted a comment in that direction here https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T146757#2959943. That said, to the contrary to the OCG, the electron-renderer (effort) seems be self-focused an to offer little opportunities to be reused for other formats.

@Paladox I have been able to reupload the github copy. For me it looks like the problem is fixed :) Thank you very much to the people involved in this. I'm very sorry for your lost of time due to my stupid error.
@Paladox I have still exactly the same error (after merging your code). As far as I know this has always been a problem to import code from other people (without following the standard gerrit merge requests). Pretty sure, I simple do not have enough permissions to do that.
Mar 24 2017
I can't neither because I can only upload commits with my user
I suspect I have deleted the content by deleting these two branches (push origin --delete) remote/gerrit/zeno2 and remote/gerrit/master.

The VM has been updated.

The Kiwix team needs to have this ticket implemented to be able to fully implement this project:

I have only a small overview about the dynamics around the future of the OCG portable, so please correct me if I say something really wrong, but here are my toughs about it:
