    Default [Release] Offline Wikipedia by Patrick Collison

    Thought it deserved a thread. Was posted somewhere before but under heaps of posts it's not very easy to find.

    This is an offline solution and doesn't require installation of php/server etc.

    Check it out,

    Very nice. 2 GB of info, though, wow. That's going to completely fill the remaining of my 4 GB.

    Sounds brilliant, I don't really understand the install instructions. It says put the app in /Applications but how do I achieve that? :p

    Worked it out. Have to SSH and send the files over, had never done this before so didn't know about it!

    On 1.1.3 I got SSH working by installing BSD subsystem and then openSSH from installer.app

    I use cyberduck to connect to my phone over wireless using the IP address in settings>wifi on iphone as host address and
    username=root
    password=alpine

    at least that worked for me. Thanks

    Ya. Installation is very easy. I love this.. sum of human knowledge in my pocket!

    The parser has some room for improvement though. Devs please contribute and make the parser better. The source is here,

    I installed it overnight (took about 3 hours to download + unpack + upload), and it's lovely. Can't wait for the need to actually use this. I only have 500 MB left of storage though >_<

    Using iPhoneBrowser to upload the dump on your phone is a good idea. The connection is reliable and it takes less time.
