I have added OnlineDocument model to Health, see below:


At the moment, it only include: https://docs.gnuhealth.org

If user use gnuhealth in local network, they can create a local website with the help of nginx,
and add a record to online document by admin,

I agree that shipping offline documentation would be nice.

But I have doubts on adding modules or creating PDFs.

We already have HTML files, why not just shipping them and creating a link to top level index.html on Desktop of work stations? They should have any browser to open them no?

Alternatively we could even put the Mercurial repository with a Cron job that updates and rebuilds if internet access exists.

See docs contributing for how to build locally:

Indeed, that is a good point.

For each component, we could generate a pdf based on the rst documents on doc.gnuhealth.org, and include them on the tarball.

We would need to update them on each patchset.

I'm curious why we don't create a health module that adds the “Read doc offline” menu to the gnuhealth ui,

In most cases, the environment running gnuhealth cannot access the Internet due to network security, and it seems important to read documents offline
