Your job is to output the html of the current version (at the time of this writing) of the Wikipedia page for Kolmogorov complexity: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Kolmogorov_complexity&oldid=781950121&action=raw (backup)

This is , so the shortest code wins.

    \$\begingroup\$ I downvoted because I don't think this is an interesting challenge; there isn't much room for compression in my opinion. Other than maybe tags, not much can be done to compress it. \$\endgroup\$ – hyper-neutrino Jun 12 '17 at 13:23
  • \$\begingroup\$ @HyperNeutrino Well, you could encode the abstract concept of kolmogorov complexity, and then train a neural net on generating wikipedia articles, and then feed in the kolmogorov complexity concept. \$\endgroup\$ – PyRulez Jun 12 '17 at 13:27

7zip file manager: 12,156 bytes

hex dump: here

how to use:

7zip e [savedfileName]

I'm posting this because it's about as small as you can get it without using HTTP calls.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Is this valid seeing as it requires the use of an external file? \$\endgroup\$ – Shaggy Jun 12 '17 at 21:00
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Shaggy source code files aren't considered external. \$\endgroup\$ – tuskiomi Jun 13 '17 at 13:16

Bubblegum, 12,290 bytes

Hexdump of solution.

Try it online! (you have to paste the hexdump yourself, it's too long to fit in 30k chars)
