This farm of VMs runs:

  • mwoffliner, a Node.js software able to make a snapshot of a Mediawiki instance on the local filesystem.
  • zimwriterfs, a c++ coded binary, responsible for transforming a local directory with HTML content in a highly compressed ZIM file
  • rsync as a daemon, to allow Kiwix mirror master to download the created ZIM files.

This VMs strongly rely on Wikimedia projects standart & Parsoid APIs.


The setup procedure of a MWoffliner VM is explain here.
