Description

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.

What’s New

Version 5.4.1

Added modifiers to the “Delaying” status string indicating the source of the delay.

Takes some tweaking

Ultimately, this app did what I wanted quickly and efficiently, though it took some wrestling with the configuration and reading the docs to get it right. Quickly and efficiently let me create local mirrors of ~150 web pages, but getting it to hoover up the data I wanted and ONLY the data I wanted wasn't straightforward.

That said, if you're in the market for a tool like this, you're probably used to fiddling with settings and such, and it certainly saved me enough time to justify the $5 price. I mean, you can do the same thing with httrack on the command line, but with 150 site URLs to paste in, why would you want to?

A Lifesaver for Web Developers who might need desktop read or who don't have login credentials

I just downloaded this software, popped in the URL, and ran it. It seemed to process a bunch of numbers and then suddenly stopped. I thought it was failing, but voila! There was everything—all the site files, including the wp-content—sitting in my downloads folder. WordPress PHP outputs were converted to HTML files, allowing me to read them using a local web browser.

To ensure the links were locally referenced, I even shut off my internet connection. Everything was there on my hard drive. I am blown away. It was so awesome. I've been creating websites for more than 20 years, and this is just what I needed. It probably saved me two hours of work since I needed a visual backup for the website and did not have access to the database or website logins.

Well worth the money!

SiteSucker can be DANGEROUS!!!

I had to put my first download on "pause" because the "remaining" number kept getting higher and higher with no clue as to how long its growth would continue (When my computer was destroyed?)
I have written to the seller--twice--but have not yet received any reply, so here's my final complaint.

Whoops! There are instructions. I just found them. Too bad I didn't see them before I started doing my first download. I had to put it on "pause" because I was becoming very concerned that it was leading to the burnout of my computer. Well, now I'll print a User Guide for myself. After studying it, I'll go back to my first project. My question now is whether there is some kind of preview of things to come, like : Do I have enough memory for the job, or how much storage is required, or how long the download will take. You know, things like that. I'll be restarring it when I learn how to use it in safety, safety for my computeer that is.
