Download the Entire Site with wget

If you don’t have homebrew please install it. It will make all our lives easier.


This was kinda simple but I wanted to post it here for reference.

On thing I would like to note is the wait and limit-rate. Make sure you don’t trip any throttles or piss off any website owners by leaving the pipes wide open.

wget \
     --recursive \
     --no-clobber \
     --page-requisites \
     --convert-links \
     --wait=5 --limit-rate=20K \
     --domains \
     --no-parent \

Alternate you can run the mirror command

wget -m --wait=5

I am sure one can use lynx but this is what I like. And it’s handy on the mac.
