    Question download complete website for offline viewing

    Hi all,

    I am going to download a complete website for offline viewing. I am wondering what is your suggestion? What command is suitable for this?

    Thank you for your help.

    I am using Cygwin.

    Cygwin is Windows software.

    I prefer HTTrack, even on Windows. It's available in the repositories and the Linux version even has web interface (webhttrack), which I like more than the standalone gui on windows version.

    curl for a script-based webpage grabber. Otherwise there are several firefox plug-ins for offline browsing. Zotero for cut-and-paste of webpages into notes.

    as for command - the wget should get you what you need. you can man it for parameters you wish to have.

    wgetgui to provide a gui.

    Code:
    wget --mirror <domain name>
    Works pretty nicely for me. Make sure to replace <domain name> with your domain.
