Offline download of dev documentation

Postby endi » Mon Aug 08, 2011 11:29 am

I can't find a link to download the API documentation for offline use, either on api.joomla.org or on docs.joomla.org. I read in another forum topic that it used to be available (as of 1.5, in 2009). Is it still available? If not, can I suggest to restore it? It can be very useful for work from home, where broadband is not available. Thank you!

Chris.

same problem here, I also could not get download link for offline docs.
But one interesting thing I noticed:

when I go to http://api.joomla.org/ I only see these options under Packages (on Left):
Unknown
Joomla-Platform
PHPMailer
SimplePie
utf8

but when I came through a google search to this url:
http://api.joomla.org/Joomla-Framework/ ... ation.html

I see there are different options under 'Packages' drop down Select List:
Unknown
Archive_Tar
geshi
Joomla
Joomla-Framework
---
---
etc.

but I noticed the home url for both is same: http://api.joomla.org/ and both page have different look and feel also.

This is probably because the new Joomla Platform material was added to the site recently.

You can now download the Platform documentation from http://api.joomla.org/11.2.tar.bz2 for offline use.

May I ask, why the link to the current downloadable Documentation is not provided as a usual practice on the online documentation page?

Thanks,

-John
