SiteSucker is a Macintosh application that automatically downloads Web sites from the Internet. It does this by asynchronously copying the site's webpages, images, PDFs, style sheets, and other files to your local hard drive, duplicating the site's directory structure.

SiteSucker can be used to make local copies of Web sites. By default, SiteSucker "localizes" the files it downloads, allowing you to browse a site offline, but it can also download sites without modification.

Interface needs improvements, but a MUST HAVE utility

As a citizen journalist and researcher, this tool is indispensible. Sometimes we enounter a treasure chest of PDFs, and this tool makes it remarkably fast to collect all of them. At other times, we want to save our own websites because hosting businesses may delete them. There is no match to SiteSucker - I promote it all the time on Twitter. I do with the tool was a bit more intuitive with respect to selecting which links to follow, nesting levels, and other advanced topics, but one step at a time. I am very thankful for the development of this tool, and reccomend this tool to all the people I work with.

Saved A Legacy

Use this software in hopes of saving a friend’s life work. A friend of mine had created an online classroom with different lessons pulling links from different storage sites and backups. This project would have been a complete nightmare had it not of been for SiteSucker. We even tried other resources and non could get past the password login screen.

With site sucker there is actually a built in browser that allows you to load the site and login using your credentials and then site sucker can do it’s magic.

The seller is extremely responsive and very helpful.

When I was stuck trying to download the site and was getting errors in site sucker, Rich emailed me back what the issues were and on top of that, created a custom site sucker profile that I could use to download the site without errors. It’s very uncommon to find that level of communication and stellar customer service in this day and age.

Thank you again Rich for such an amazing piece of software.

Not quite turn-key, but works great with minimal effort

I was *hoping* the app was turnkey, because I came into this completely unfamiliar with how to download/archive a website. After a few tries clicking the “download” button, I read the support guide, which was very clear and helpful, and was able to troubleshoot my way into accessing the site’s login page, and voila. Great solution that got me out of a fix, and compelled me to write a positive review :)
