MapFish requires internet connection to work

Description

MapFish? currently accesses a basemap from the web (OSM?). Our aim for OSGeoLive is that all applications should work without connecting to the internet.

Can we set up MapFish? to access a local basemap instead?

a local TMS cache would have to be established (MapTiler? or gdal2tiles.py), put somewhere the local apache could get at, and the URLs updated. but that consumes disc space which in part defeats the entire purpose of the program.

MapFish is a flexible and complete framework
for building rich web-mapping applications.

... in the end you can't take the web- out of a web-mapping tool, ...
