Save webpage content with links via Pages
Authored by: foilpan on Feb 10, '05 02:18:34PM

why not just save the page as HTML from your browser? all this cutting and pasting is unnecessary.

or, if you really want an archived copy, just use the command line with a tool like wget. i use wget -r -l1 -k or some combination of options to get the the desired results.

-r -> recursive
-l -> levels to recurse (1, in this case)
-k -> convert links to relative

curl has similar capabilities. and there are other site sucking tools out there that do the same but have GUIs.

Save webpage content with links via Pages

Regarding saving web pages. More often than not, I need only a few text/graphics of a web page, this, I copy and paste into Hogbay notebook which handles all my little snippets. Often I have to do a second round copy and paste just so I can get a record of the original URL. It would be nice to streamline it into one step. About wget, my alias file is full of wget aliases and it is one of my most used tool. The only advange curl has is the ability to do some limited pattern matching to the url.
