how to clone a wiki for offline viewing?

Hi. I’m trying to clone a github wiki ( which contains images for offline viewing, but with the git clone command on ubuntu it saves the pages as .md format, without images. Is there any way to save the pages as normal html for offline viewing? I also tried to save the web page, complete, with firefox, but it seems github doesn’t allow this. Thanks.

There isn’t a built-in way to save the wiki pages as HTML, no. If the wiki’s content is all in Markdown, you might be able to use Jekyll to view it locally, but it wouldn’t be an exact replica since that wouldn’t replicate the theme and some in-built functionality of the GitHub wiki system. On the other hand, the GitHub wiki system was originally built from gollum, so you might be able to use that to view it locally? Both of these solutions won’t be an out-of-the-box sort of system though, they would require a bit of legwork on your part to make them happen.

I hope that helps!
