How to Create a new wikipedia activity or update a existing activity
[http://activities.sugarlabs.org/es-ES/sugar/addon/4401 Wikipedia es] or [http://activities.sugarlabs.org/es-ES/sugar/addon/4411 Wikipedia en]
The general idea is to download an xml dump-file (backup) containing the state of the wikipedia pages, this is processed to select certain pages and compress them into a self-contained Sugar activity. Whether or not to include the images from the wiki articles will have a large impact on the size of the activity.
You will need a computer with a lot of space on disk, and a working Sugar environment. May be using packages provided by your linux distribution or in a virtual machine. The wikipedia xml file is big (almost 6 GB to the spanish wikipedia, bigger in english), and you need more space to generate temporary files. The process takes a lot of time too, but is automatic, you only need check states at finish of every stage.
This page is a work in progress. If you have doubts or the information provided is not good enough, please contact me at gonzalo at laptop dot org and I will try to improve it.
