I don't always have an internet connection while working on macros.

Not that I know of.

You could try some site-rip software to build an offline version of the wiki to use.

Here is something free and opensource: http://www.httrack.com/page/1/en/index.html

Or this one: http://www.spadixbd.com/backstreet/

Let me know how it goes. I'd like to have an offline copy of the wiki, too. ;)

I've tested httrack, looks like it's working.

Tbh I tested the results while connected (I'm that lazy) but most urls seemed to point to the local storage, but the search box won't work for instance.

Around ~90 Mo. It took quite some time to fetch the whole wiki.

Acrobat Pro has a method to convert a site to a PDF (so it would be searchable)... but I have little experience with it and after testing, it had issues with properly formatting the left hand navigation menu over top of pages. So looking at site-to-PDF conversion software might be a option, too.
