Gollum is the name of my newest crime of invention. By reducing the complexity of information, I have created a fast and eyefriendly browser through the free encyclopedia "Wikipedia". Originally this invention was built up for my daughter but now I have expanded it to the world for free as an open source project under GPL.

IngredientsGollum is based on PHP and Javascript using XMLHttp request for communication, better known as Ajax. That means, there is no need for databases and the code is ready for PHP5. Therefore, the client is only required to use a browser like Firefox, MS Internet Explorer, Netscape or Safari with activated Javascript. Safari has yet to be tested.

Example for the handing over of variablesThis page is automatically called up by the handing over of variables. The following example demonstrates the call of variables and how to call Gollum directly.


l = en       // GUI Language
wl = en      // Wikipedia Language 
q = Spanien  // Searchterm

Example to link textComet Shoemaker-Levy 9 was discovered in a photograph taken on the night of March 24, 1993 with the Schmidt telescope at the Mount Palomar Observatory in California, and was the ninth comet discovered by astronomers Carolyn and Eugene M. Shoemaker and David Levy.

<script language="javascript">

  function gollum(q, l, wl)
      var wikiwin =  window.open("http://gollum.easycp.de/gollum/gollum.php?a=core&l="+((l)?l:'')+"&wl="+((wl)?wl:'')+"&q="+((q)?q:''), "WIKI_ENVIRONMENT", "height=580, width=780, top=0, left=0, menubar=0, location=0, resizable=1, status=1");
