Steps to Completion

Paragraph


One Laptop per Child's WikiBrowse Activity serves large amounts of compressed Wikipedia data, quickly. Constructed in Python, it uses C functions to pull out articles from a series of small compressed blocks


WikiBrose serves wikipedia content out of a compressed copy of the XML dump file after indexing it. The architecture is that there are C functions to pull out articles, and several interfaces to those C functions: the main interface is the iPhone app, but there's also a web server (written in Ruby with Mongrel) that runs locally and serves up pages from the compressed archive.
