Local copy of WordPress Codex?

Sometimes I want to develop WordPress themes when I have no internet connection. I need the Function Reference and Template Tags to be productive.

I searched for a downloadable or SVN copy of the Codex but could not find one. I ended up trying to mirror it using wget, but the results were spotty (it’s too huge!).

Is there a better way?


I Use a much faster and easier way to create a local copy of the codex without installing a local server and without installing copy of mediawiki, its called ScrapBook which is a Firefox extension, that helps you to save Web pages and manage the collection. Key features are lightness, speed, accuracy and multi-language support.

using it’s Save Web site (In-depth Capture)feature you can set the directories you want to save , which in your case would be Function Reference and Template Tags

you can also organize your collections just like bookmarks, edit saved files and highlight key parts of pages and the best thing about it is the built in full text search.
