Offline Runtime


#1

Hello,

To use panda on secure (windows) machines or to use it for education (short workshop style, internet connection and rights unclear), it’s essential to be able to deploy files manually, offline.

Looks like the SDK is available as an offline installer.

Is there an offline runtime available?

The runtime installs offline, but it is designed to fetch files from an external host, most commonly runtime.panda3d.org.

However, it should be possible to create a local mirror of the runtime.panda3d.org packages. You could download all the files (with a recursive wget) from runtime.panda3d.org/ to a directory which is passed as a local file:// URL to panda3d via the -u or -M option (experiment to see what works best). Of course, this means you are responsible for downloading updates yourself.
