Pycharm Offline Access to

I can download the full Python documents to my offline machine.  I just want Pycharm to find them for supporting:

  • Quick Definition
  • Quick Type Definition
  • Quick Documentation
  • External Documentation
  • etc.

How do I provide PyCharm a `file://` URL to find them?

I tried hosting `` locally by starting a web server locally and editing `/etc/hosts` to look to my IP for that DNS name.  That works in that I can browse that URL.  But, it doesn't work for Pycharm because it is looking to SSL/TLS by using `https`. I don't want to deal with certs. If I can't tell Pycharm to look to `file://`, how can I tell it to use `http` instead of `https`?
