Summary: Feature-Request: Extension to export all articles to a
                    single PDF is missing
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: any
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: [other]


after searching & testing several hours i reached the following situation:

Current Situation:
It's seem like there is no single extension allowing an easy export of all
articles to a single pdf - while there are several ways to generate pdfs from a
collection of articles or single categories.

Extensions i did consider:
Extension: DumpHTML - working - but due to missing search (html) its not really
useable as offside backup

Extension: PDF Export -> broken (see extension discussion/talk page)

Extension: Collection: complex config & requires online access or additional
servers - might be a problem for specific setups.

Extension: PDF Book (pdf & html) - works pretty good for single categories -
but is missing an option to select ALL articles.

A simple way to generate easy readable offsite backups of entire mediawiki
installations - in best case the pdf-generation could be triggered from
mediawiki itself but as well from cli (i.e. for cron-jobs/script usage)

I guess it could make sense to tweak Extension:PDFbook - as in theory/right now
it should just miss an option to collect all articles. The pdf-generation in
general is working already for single categories. 

If that function would be added it would be pretty easy to generate pdf-backups
from entire wikis - which might help several people overall.
