I’ve been looking for an enhancement for
wget for a while now, and I think I’ve finally found it. httrack seems to do a nice job of pulling down a site to a local repository so that it can be viewed as expected off the filesystem. Additionally, it purportedly (testing is ongoing) also does updates, which should help as well. The main problem with
wget was that stylesheets called using the
@import convention were not downloaded, and image references within stylesheets were also not fetched, which leads to unstyled pages in local repositories, which I didn’t like. There’s more testing to do, but so far the system looks good.
