Project discontinued

Due to lack of time, the generation of Wikipedia archives and development of the clients has been discontinued. Currently, the archive tracker is also offline, but it will be restored at a later time. Since there is a good alternative in the kiwix project (which is also officially supported by Wikipedia), the Evopedia team will try to contribute there in the future.


Android (beta)
package (beta11)
Please note that, though it is already usable, the Android application is still unfinished. Expect weird things to happen but please also report anything you think we should know.
For newer Android versions, archives cannot be found on the storage. This is a known issue and is unfortunately unlikely to be fixed since evopedia does not have any active developer anymore. If you want to fix it yourself, please check out the source code on github.

Branches (coming soon to main evopedia)
