Description 📒

Website downloader works with wget and archiver to download all websites assets and compress then sends it back to the user through socket channel

Wget params the being used

wget --mirror --convert-links --adjust-extension --page-requisites --no-parent

Explanation of the various flags:

  • --mirror – Makes (among other things) the download recursive.
  • --convert-links – convert all the links (also to stuff like CSS stylesheets) to relative, so it will be suitable for offline viewing.
  • --adjust-extension – Adds suitable extensions to filenames (html or css) depending on their content-type.
  • --page-requisites – Download things like CSS style-sheets and images required to properly display the page offline.
  • --no-parent – When recursing do not ascend to the parent directory. It useful for restricting the download to only a portion of the site

How to run it 🤔

  • git clone this repo
  • $ npm install
