You can download it from.github or clone the webpage .. no need to be online for it

http://paperwallet.bitshares.eu/ seems to be calling bootstrap, jquery, and font-awesome js/css remotely.

If those are moved locally is there anything else you can see that would have to be moved locally to get http://paperwallet.bitshares.eu/ to generate keys on a cold computer?

this may help

As near as I can tell that paperwallet has to be online to generate the keys.  Is there a way to generate them offline?

I'm recommending creating new disposable accounts in the bitshares GUI, then pinching the keys created by the Bitshares software for those new accounts.

I imagine "pinching" means deleting the permissions on the accounts.  If so, I'd need to add some public keys generated offline somehow first.

How's the best way to generate those public/private keys right now, offline?  Is it possible to generate them with on offline version of Bitshares?

My question is has it been vetted?

Does it generate enough entropy?
