How to Download a Web Site with wget for Offline Browsing

$ wget

Last Updated: May 11th 2021

If you ever need to download a Web site, perhaps for off-line viewing, wget can do the job—for example:

$ wget \

    --recursive \

    --no-clobber \

    --page-requisites \

    --html-extension \

    --convert-links \

    --restrict-file-names=windows \

    --domains \

    --no-parent \

This command downloads the Web site

The options are:

--recursive: download the entire Web site.

--domains don't follow links outside

--no-parent: don't follow links outside the directory tutorials/html/.

--page-requisites: get all the elements that compose the page (images, CSS and so on).

--html-extension: save files with the .html extension.

--convert-links: convert links so that they work locally, off-line.

--restrict-file-names=windows: modify filenames so that they will work in Windows as well.

--no-clobber: don't overwrite any existing files (used in case the download is interrupted and resumed).
