The zimwriter is a tool to create zim files. The articles for the files are read from a postgresql database. The schema for the database is documented in the zimwriter source as a sql script de/zim-postgresql.sql.

The current implementation has a abstraction for the data source, so that it will be possible to implement other data sources (as a replacement to the database) e.g. the file system.

The full text search implemented in zimlib and used in zimreader there is a index file needed. The index file is actually a zim file with special articles in namespace X.

The indexer, which creates that index file is implemented as a data source in zimwriter. It reads the articles from a zim file to create the full text index. To use it, pass -Z zimfile to the writer e.g. zimwriter -Z wikipedia-de.zim wikipedia-de-x.zim.
