Is there an official way to get two RPi's linking to the same html webpage?

No, no official way. Only hackerish and then upload does not work across the network.

The better solution would be the IPFS route, that you have two independent systems, which sync up after meeting. So you "talk" only to your local node, which is much more efficient.
Mesh is only providing a infrastructure for synchronization.

Mesh support has been discussed many times, but never properly implimented. The problem is a lack of actual use cases: Unless civilisation collapses and the internet stays down, who actually has enough pirate boxes clustered within radio range to use a mesh?

I’ve been thinking about this a bit. Ideally bumping up storage for the pirate box to a a tb and placing repeaters in different bars/ restaurants. I had minor success in taking a wireless router putting it into repeater mode and expanding my range a little. But I am not sure the Belkin or netgear plug in repeaters will do a mesh.
