wget is a must for me. It’s really good, and easy to use. Saves o lot of time and work when downloading files since
wget is downloading the file to the directory you’re in. So, here’s how to install wget in OS X.
First we’ll create a source folder. In Terminal:
mkdir -p ~/source cd ~/source
…and here we go:
curl -O http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/wget/wget-1.16.tar.gz tar -xzvf wget-1.16.tar.gz cd wget-1.16 ./configure --with-ssl=openssl make sudo make install
openssl must be set to avoid errors.
Cleaning up a bit:
rm -rf ~/source
If you want to test it:
which wget #Should output: /usr/local/bin/wget
/usr/local/bin/ is in your
When downloading a file just simply enter:
It downloads to the same folder you’re in.
Another way to use it is to download/mirror your HTML site.
wget -r --convert-links http://www.mysite.com/
