    I don't know about the wiki, but there's https://github.com/dash-docs-el/helm-dash and https://github.com/blahgeek/emacs-devdocs-browser for browsing docs offline in Emacs. Though if you're looking for stuff you can read offline in Emacs maybe try a book, Emacs is nice for reading pdf's or epub's (with nov.el)

    devdocs-browser and devdocs.el both let you read https://devdocs.io in emacs, and cache them locally. Your language of choice needs to be in devdocs though.

    I see, a web search on "emacs devdocs" gave me three different packages: devdocs.el, emacs-devdocs-lookup and emacs-devdocs-browser. There is some blog post about Emacs and devdocs too.
