Offline access/version?

Would there be a possibility, to allow 'downloading' some parts of the database/store to make offline usage available through some kind of application which reads that data? I'm a dev and Japanese learner without internet connection sometimes, so I'd like to make some sort of offline dict.

There is no offline version of Jisho specifically, but there are offline apps that use the same data sources. Some of them are listed in our FAQ: https://jisho.org/faq

If you want to make your own app you can see our list of data source on the About page: https://jisho.org/about

sounds like you are looking for yomichan https://github.com/FooSoft/yomichan

It's highly customizable and you can add whatever dictionaries you like to it. You probably want to install jmdict, which is the main dictionary used by jisho. I also have 新明解 and 大辞林 on mine, which I like a lot

you can use the build of jmdict on the yomichan page, or you can use yomichan-import to compile the latest build at your own leisure, which is what I do (jmdict is constantly being updated!)

also here are a bunch of dictionaries in addition to the ones listed on the yomichan page. some of them have occasional formatting issues, but for the most part they are very useable https://learnjapanese.moe/monolingual/#getting-and-using-monolingual-dictionaries
