msync is a command line client for Mastodon (and anything else that implements the same API, including Pleroma) that works a little different. msync doesn't stay connected to the internet all the time and constantly pull new posts. Instead, it only connects when you use the msync sync command. Every other change is stored on your computer until then. You can queue up posts to send, boost, bookmark, and favorite when you're online, download posts, notifications, and bookmarks to look at offline, and do the same for as many accounts as you want.
msync currently supports queueing and sending posts, boosts, favorites, and bookmarks for any number of accounts, as well as downloading the home timeline, notifications, bookmarks, and arbitrary threads.
Once you have obtained an archive (see below), you can select it in Kiwix JS, and search for article titles. No further Internet access is required to read the archive's content. For example, you can have the entire content of Wikipedia in your own language inside your device (including images and audiovisual content) entirely offline. If your Internet access is expensive, intermittent, slow, unreliable, observed or censored, you can still have access to this amazing repository of knowledge, information and culture.
The reader also works with other content in the OpenZIM format: https://wiki.openzim.org/wiki/OpenZIM.
The Unofficial Homestuck Collection is a heavily customised browser, built from the ground up to support Homestuck and its related works. Flashes? We got 'em. The collection runs Flash content natively, providing the most authentic Homestuck experience possible.
Don't get it twisted though, because "browser" in this context doesn't mean "online". The Unofficial Homestuck Collection is completely self contained, and never has to connect to the internet once you have it downloaded.
From the very beginning, The Unofficial Homestuck Collection has been designed to work as a safe way for new readers to get their teeth into the Homestuck universe. If you so choose, all future content will be carefully gated off until your progress in Homestuck makes it safe to view.
We've got complete control over the browser, so you'd better believe we're taking advantage of it. Mid 2000's quality bitcrushed Flash audio? Nah, man. Almost every single flash in Homestuck has been painstakingly reworked with the highest quality music available. You have to hear it to believe it. Want to use themes on every page? Go nuts, I'm not the boss of you. Arrow key navigation? Automatically opening pesterlogs? You got it. Want absolutely none of the above? That's also an option! It's Homestuck, the way you want it.
There are even third-party mods.
Download the application, download the assets. Done.
This is an implementation of the Kiwix offline Wikipedia reader as a progressive web app which runs in modern web browsers. You can download ZIM files through the app for later or open ones you already have. As long as it's an OpenZIM format archive file you can open it. When you install it, it shows up like any other application on the desktop.
Two modes: Jquery (for older browsers) and ServiceWorker (newer browsers, also supports archives with dynamic content)
Download .zim files for use with Kiwix directly or with Bittorrent.
A proof-of-concept inspired and enabled by Hosting SQLite Databases on Github Pages and the ensuing Hacker News post. The compiled single-page app supports autocomplete for titles, automatic redirecting & other MediaWiki datasets like WikiQuote or Chinese Wikipedia. It makes no external API calls except to get Wikipedia's images.
Seems ideal for making offline copies of Wikipedia (or other Mediawiki installs, it's implied) available.

SQLite copies of Wikipedia: https://www.kaggle.com/segfall/markdownlike-wikipedia-dumps-in-sqlite
Has instructions for turning an XML dump of Wikipedia into a SQLite database; unfortunately it uses node.js.
An open source brute-force passphrase cracker for attacking Truecrypt volumes. Can attack volumes that use the RIPEMD160 and AES-XTS cryptosystems by either throwing a dictionary at it or by generating pseudorandom passphrases from a user-defined set of characters. CUDA-aware, so nVidia graphics cards can be used to accelerate the process.
Kiwix is a utility which lets you archive web pages so that they can be read offline or copied and distributed in the event that there is no connectivity. While it was designed to work with Wikipedia it will actually work with just about any website you throw at it. Cross platform, runs on Windows, Linux, and other OSes. There is even a portable Windows version that doesn't require installation.
Where and how to download mirrors of Wikipedia (or any of the Wikimedia projects, for that matter). You can put the copies up someplace to set up mirrors, put up local copies, archive them, give them to people, set up your own instance, use it for research...
XowA does one thing and does it well: It lets you make a local backup of Wikipedia (probably any Mediawiki, really) to carry around with you or copy to removable media (like a USB key or DVD-ROMs) so you can give out copies and read it offline. Runs on Windows, Linux, and MacOSX. Portable - can be run from removable media. Even includes a search engine. Written in Java.
The more-or-less official file format for offline reading of Wikipedia. The full byte-by-byte description of ZIM archives can be found here. There is also a zimlib-git AUR package for Arch Linux.
An offline version of the Khan Academy. Replicates the experience of the online classrooms. Watch videos, do exercises, track student progress. Can be customized. Use at home, in classrooms, or to create entire schools. Supports ten different languages now.
