My friend asked me whether it is possible to use Pelican static site generator to build a offline website which can be viewd on local machines without internet access. After some searches , it seems impossible to do it. Suddenly I found that we asked the wrong question because the our purpose is totally nothing to do with Pelican! The question should be: is it possible to get an offline copy of an online website?
The answer is YES! wget can do this for static sites without any problem. After some searches , I found the solution  is exactly what we need. So sometimes asking questions from different ways can lead to unexpected easy solution!
Tested on: Ubuntu Linux 18.04.
