loot-ui

An experimental server that renders a web UI for Wikipedia content.

This is a research project of the Reading Web Team from the Wikimedia Foundation.

The main objective is to get Wikipedia content to load really fast on 2G connections. More concretely, to load Barack Obama's article: in under 15 seconds on 2G.

For that, the approach of the research is to create a web application that will leverage client side caching and that will be server rendered on first load with a minimal lean HTML.

Features

  • Lean and fast HTML only mode (server side rendering of client side web app).
  • Client side webapp that picks up from server side render.
    • Leverage modern client side technologies (indexeddb, service worker).
  • Offline use and reading of content.
