What would you like to do?
download an entire page (including css, js, images) for offline-reading, archiving… using wget

If you ever need to download an entire website, perhaps for off-line viewing, wget can do the job — for example:

$ wget --recursive --no-clobber --page-requisites --html-extension --convert-links --restrict-file-names=windows --domains --no-parent

This command downloads the website

The options are:

  • --recursive: download the entire website
  • --domains don't follow links outside
  • --no-parent: don't follow links outside the directory tutorials/html/
  • --page-requisites: get all the elements that compose the page (images, css and so on)
  • --html-extension: save files with the .html extension
  • --convert-links: convert links so that they work locally, off-line
  • --restrict-file-names=windows: modify filenames so that they will work in Windows as well
  • --no-clobber: don't overwrite any existing files (used in case the download is interrupted and resumed).

I had to add "-e robots=off" for it to work on this specific site. Thanks!
