Thread: Viewing web-pages offline

  1. #1

    Default Viewing web-pages offline

    Hello,

    How can the web-pages be viewed offline? The scrapbook plus add-on is no more compatible with Firefox 26.0.

    Thanks.

    But beta version can break things sometimes...is it true...? Because it is beta and not stable.

    Also, we have any other such package in openSUSE?

    Well you have to tell that the developer of the package to make the
    stable release compatible with FF 26. This is not an openSUSE package
    and I am not aware that anyone here can do anything about it.
    There is a support email link on the page you posted where you can
    contact the developer of the addon.

    Yes, I know that...But is there any other package in openSUSE like that which makes one able to browse offline? Or a similar utility?

    Squid can be configured as a caching proxy, I understand. Maybe have a
    look at that.

    Not that I know another package which does that. Maybe someone else
    knows one.

    Honestly I would not be that critical when looking at a
    firefox addon which is beta, it is not likely that such an addon for
    offline reading has any effect to your system, in the very worst case it
    could make your firefox unstable (but this can happen with every non
    beta addon also) and if that happens it is a matter of seconds to remove it.

    wget can be used to mirror a web page locally. Then you can point Firefox to the local file and load
    it, or serve it out from your own Apache.

    Nowadays I use wget exclusively (I've used a few others in the past) especially now that it supports multi-threading which speeds up the download immensely.

    Very few websites aren't replicated so your copy works perfectly.

    Recommend you construct a base command, then save it. After that, you only need to point the command to any website you choose and if you choose to restrict the links to only the website's own domain, then the domain would need to be defined.

    Use this addon to store webpages in archived/compressed format on your
    machine
