Is there any free application for downloading an entire site installable on Mac OS X 10.6?
I've always loved the name of this one: SiteSucker.
UPDATE: Versions 2.5 and above are not free any more. You may still be able to download earlier versions from their website.
You can use wget with it's
wget --mirror –w 2 –p --HTML-extension –-convert-links –P /home/user/sitecopy/
man page for additional switches here.
For OSX, you can easily install
wget(and other command line tools) using
If using the command line is too difficult, then CocoaWget is an OS X GUI for
wget. (Version 2.7.0 includes wget 1.11.4 from June 2008, but it works fine.)
SiteSuuker has already been recommended and it does a decent job for most websites.
I also find DeepVacuum to be a handy and simple tool with some useful "presets".
Screenshot is attached below.
I use this on leopard, not sure if it will work on snow leopard, but worth a try
pavuk is by far the best option ... It is command line but has an X-Windows GUI if you install this from the Installation Disk or download. Perhaps someone could write a Aqua shell for it.
It is available through the os x ports project, install port and type
port install pavuk
Lots of options (a forest of options).
A1 Website Download for Mac
It has presets for various common site download tasks and many options for those who wish to configure in detail. Includes UI + CLI support.
Starts as a 30 days trial after which is turns into "free mode" (still suitable for small websites under 500 pages)
Use curl, it's installed by default in OS X. wget isn't, at least not on my machine, (Leopard).
curl http://www.thewebsite.com/ > dump.html
Will download to the file, dump.html in your current folder
