Access to Insight Bulk Download

Postby Bhikkhu Pesala » Sun Oct 31, 2010 8:55 pm

The Access to Insight offline version has got a lot bigger with the most recent version, so presumably there are a lot of new translations. You can download the entire web site from the ATI web site as a Zip archive, or directly from my web site's Rlelated Links page as a smaller self-extracting archive:

My download is much smaller due to using 7-Zip PPMd compression. If you are on a slow connection the smaller download will save you some time. Save the file to any convenient folder and execute the archive to extract the contents. Load start.html in your browser, and bookmark the page for future reference.

Decompression takes about a minute on my PC.

Bhante,

It's bigger probably because now translations are connected to original Pali.

Updated with the latest version released on 23rd December 2010. The links in the first post are the same.

The original ZIP archive is now 25.1 Mbytes, and my Self-extracting archive is now 13.9 Mbytes, so it looks like a good deal of new material has been added.

Thank you, Bh. Pesala, for your diligence in maintaining the updating of this download. Since the demise of the other forum, I had missed your updated download announcements of the ATI website.

Note to Administrators: I wonder if there's any chance that this thread could be sticked in this subforum. That way, it wouldn't need to be bumped to the top of the heap.

No need to make it sticky. Bookmark it, and if I miss the update, post to the thread to remind me. I always check new posts when I visit the forum.

Offline versions can be useful if your internet connection goes down, or if a web site goes offline, or if you're on the move.

My own website is available in ZIP or EXE formats from the Home Page. That is not quite up-to-date at the moment. I am still in the process of updating my books.

I am confused as to how to navigate through the website. Most of them are in form of index with author, subject etc. It's so hard to actually read anything.

Much of the site is translations of suttas, so using the index of names or similes is a convenient way to find things, but that assumes some basic knowledge first.

Take a look at Getting Started or the Site Map

Updated with the latest version released on 12th March 2013.

The link in the first post now goes to the relevant page on my web site. Please download it from there. I disabled hot-linking to files on my server.

The original ZIP archive is now 22.2 Mbytes, and my 7-Zip archive is now 10.1 Mbytes.

The Access to Insight offline version has got a lot bigger as it includes some PDF files. You can download the entire web site from the ATI web site as a Zip archive, or directly from my web site's Related Links page as a smaller self-extracting archive:

My download is smaller due to using 7-Zip LZMA2 compression. If you are on a slow connection the smaller download will save you a little time, though the difference is not as great as it used to be due to the PDF content, which doesn't compress much.

Save the file to any convenient folder and execute the archive to extract the contents. Load start.html in your browser, and bookmark the page for future reference.
