Hmm, offline browsing and Wikis don't mix very well.
For structured wikis, I had some success with wget, grabbing the root
"Entire wiki Contents" page like this:
wget -r -l1 http://www.zope.org/Products/PTK/ZWiki/FrontPage/map
This should traverse all the wiki pages. This won't get things like the
"backlinks" or "offsprings" pages, though, but it's enough to browse through
a local copy of the pages.
Here we're running in the problem of mapping Zope's traversal paths onto a
filesystem: Using "wget -r -l2" won't work, since e.g.
"http://www.zope.org/Products/PTK/ZWiki/HowDoIEdit" is an HTML document as
well as a directory (like in
"http://www.zope.org/Products/PTK/ZWiki/HowDoIEdit/backlinks"). Now we
needed a Zope-aware wget that would save the HTML document as e.g.
Anyway, if you use this to fill up a web proxy cache (e.g. wwwoffle), that
knows how to handle these cases, it works quite nice, even with -l2.
I noticed another problem with wget and Zope: ZServer doesn't issue a
Last-modified header, therefore incrementely updating the pages using
timestamps (-N) fails:
freefly;129> wget -N -r -l1 http://www.zope.org/Products/PTK/ZWiki/FrontPage/map
