Could someone clarify and expand this page? I finally have time to try to build a ZIM file for the Hebrew Wikipedia to see how we can integrate openZIM in our project of bundling the Hebrew Wikipedia in the One Computer Per Child computers distributed by the Israeli Prime Minister's Office.

I have a dump created with dumpHTML.php, per [Wiki2html|these instructions]. But how do I get this into the custom PostgreSQL database? Some samples or scripts would help considerably.

Thanks in advance! Ijon 13:42, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

Hi Ijon! This week we are on an exhibition and just released an alpha version of a Wikipedia DVD. I am pretty sure that as we are together now for some days we will manage it to fill that page.
I have created a poster to show the process a bit: File:Poster ZIM Creation.pdf. Thanks for your patience and support. --Manuel Schneider 12:29, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
Hi Ijon. The perl script is currently the only way to produce a ZIM file from your Mediawiki dumped HTML files. I can help you to use it, but please tell me what does not work. Regards Kelson 09:31, 24 June 2009 (UTC)
