These are the instructions to download and compile Kiwix source code.

Get the code

The source code of Kiwix is available:

Dependencies

Kiwix relies on many open source libraries to compile. If it does not compile this probably means one of these library is not available. Check the configure log file. Some of the libraries you may miss:

  • liblzma-dev (on Debian)

Compilation

The compilation on UNIX (GNU/Linux) follows the GNU autotools procedure:

./autogen.sh
./configure
make

On Apple Mac OSX and Microsoft Windows, the compilation is far more complicated. Please have a look to the COMPILE file in Kiwix source directory.

Other

The kiwix project provides also many additional tools. You may have a look to other code repositories here.
