The official Dwarf Fortress Wiki at http://dwarffortresswiki.org/ is an invaluable piece of information when it comes to play Dwarf Fortress. Although DF is an offline game, it's hard to play without the wiki. How about an offline version of the wiki ?
Dwarf Fortress Portable Wiki aims at providing an offline, portable version of Dwarf Fortress wiki (very handy if you don't have an internet access). You can put it on your hard-disk, or on your USB key along Dwarf Fortress.
It is basically a local webserver capable of browsing the official DF Wiki export (dump.xml). It contains is a crude Wikitext renderer, hacked with some DF Wiki specific features. When I say “crude”, I mean it. It does not support the whole Wikitext syntax, and only a small subset of DF Wiki templates.
THIS IS BIG, UGLY, QUICKLY-HACKED CODE design to fit basic needs. Please note that I provide no support AT ALL. You are on your own.
Did I say it's an ugly hack and that I provide no support at all ?
