SuttaCentral

Please let me download legacy.suttacentral

please tell me how to download legacy.suttacentral. it is my go-to for various suttas. i prefer the simplicity and also the translations are less modern.

They are on github in raw html form. For example, here is DN 1 in English:

I realize this may not be what you are looking for, but it’s a start.

Perhaps a better option would be to just use a web scraper like Scrapbook in your browser.

If I’m not mistaken, the only English translations that were not moved to the new site are those by Ajahn Thanissaro (who has his own site) and those by Ven. Uppalavanna (which probably should have never been put on the site in the first place).

Those were just links, and the links are broken: One of the legacy.suttacentral links is broken

I think some of Thanissaro Bhikku’s translations were moved, but some were just links. In any case, for his translations it would be better to go directly to www.dhammtalks.org for the updated versions.
