Is there a way to download an offline copy of the Stack Overflow questions? I am hoping I can view it offline.

Thanks guys. I have found the cc-wiki-dump for Stack Overflow.

But the post in the dump XML file looks like below. I don't know where the category tag is. For example, the category tag for this question is "support".

I made a StackExchangeArchiver, and it can archive questions/answers of a specific user into a pure HTML offline page, including the images. It's made in a haste. But it can work. It's open-sourced here:https://github.com/smwikipedia/StackExchangeArchiver

I hope it can be helpful to other people.


archive.org hosts archives of every Stack Exchange website since January 2014: Stack Exchange Data Dump.

This is an anonymized dump of all user-contributed content on the Stack Exchange network. Each site is formatted as a separate archive consisting of XML files zipped via 7-zip using bzip2 compression. Each site archive includes Posts, Users, Votes, Comments, PostHistory and PostLinks. For complete schema information, see the included readme.txt.

But, be aware that the posts archive of Stack Overflow takes 14GB, have fun downloading it :-) See the official blog post for more information.
