Local Website Cache on Kiosk

Post#1 by truesdk » 22 Feb 2016, 03:27


I am looking for a way of keeping a local copy of a website on the kiosk, not a simple cache where you actually have to "hit" a page before its saved, but more of a regressive pull of the entire website so that if the internet gets cut, the kiosk still works as if nothing ever happened.

I have thought about doing a regressive wget of the entire site(s), but the problem with wget is: if resources within the site are hosted from an external site such as a CDN, then the kiosk will still pull from the CDN, whereas a product such as squid proxy will store the asset locally.

Any ideas? anyone willing to help?
