Self-Hosted Spotlight: Kiwix
Meet Kiwix, the open-source software that allows you to host your own copies of popular online repositories of information such as Wikipedia, the Gutenberg project, and TED Talks. Kiwix works by compressing the files from the available sites into ZIM files, which can then be easily served over a local network – and offline, if needed.
Kiwix offers a variety of installation options, including server software for most major operating systems as well as Docker. Despite being compressed, many of the sites can range from 50-100GB in size, so be sure to direct Kiwix to an appropriately-sized directory before jumping in.
Lastly, Kiwix is an open-source project maintained by a non-profit organization looking to bring information to parts of the world that don't have easy access to the internet. Consider donating to help the support the cost of development and maintenance.
