How can I navigate this book off-line?
Let’s say you have a long trip and you want to use it to teach yourself some shaders. In that case you can make a local copy of this book on your computer and run a local server.
For that you only need PHP, Python 3 and a git client. On MacOS and Raspberry Pi computers Python is installed by default but you still need to install PHP and a git client. For that:
