Captures the web page faithfully with highly customizable configurations.
***This extension is under development. Every feature could change in the future. Use in production carefully and be sure to make a backup frqeuently.***
WebScrapBook is a browser extension that captures the web page with highly customizable configurations. This project inherits from legacy Firefox addon ScrapBook X.
1. Capture web pages faithfully: Web pages shown in the browser can be captured without losing any subtle detail. Metadata such as source URL and timestamp are also recorded.
2. Customizable capture: WebScrapBook can save selected area in a page, save source page (before processed by scripts), or save page as a bookmark. How to capture images, audio, video, fonts, frames, styles, scripts, etc. are also customizable. A web page can be saved as a folder, a zip-based archive file (HTZ or MAFF), or a single HTML file.
3. Management of captured pages: Captures can be organized in the browser sidebar using one or more "scrapbooks", which holds a hierarchical tree structure to represent the relationship between each captured data item. Each scrapbook can be further indexed for a rich-feature search (using a combination of fulltext keywords, title, custom comment, source URL, or other metadata). (*)
4. Page editing: A web page can be edited before performing a capture. A captured page can be edited and saved back to the system. You can additionally create and manage note pages in HTML or markdown format. (*)
6. Access everywhere: Captured pages can be hosted with a central backend server so that you can access your scrapbooks from multiple devices. A static index can also be generated for a scrapbook, which can therefore be hosted on almost any shared server. (*)
7. Import from legacy ScrapBook: Data collected using legacy ScrapBook can be imported into WebScrapBook for later usage.
* All or partial functionality of a starred feature above requires a running collaborating backend server, which can be easily set up using PyWebScrapBook.
* An HTZ or MAFF archive file can be viewed using the built-in archive page viewer, with PyWebScrapBook or other assistant tools, or by opening the index page after unzipping.
