Website Watchman overview

Website Watchman is an easy to use website monitor and website archival utility.

Features:
  • Monitor a whole website, part of a website or a single page
  • Set up configs for multiple sites / pages
  • Schedule hourly, daily, weekly, monthly scan
  • Be alerted to any changes, visible text, source code or changes to the page's resources
  • Be aware of every change to a competitor's page / site
  • Runs locally, not a cloud service. Own your own data.
  • Builds an archive over time, including all changes to pages, images, style sheets and js
  • View and be able to demonstrate what a page looked like on a particular date
  • View a 'living' version of a historical page, not a screenshot
  • Switch between versions of the page to compare them
  • Export a historical page as image or collection of all of its files
  • Export the entire site, preserving all files as they were on a given date, or processed to make a browsable local copy of the site.

What’s new in version 3.1.1

Version 3.1.1:
  • Migrates the change history to its own location in Application Support. This is to prevent possible corruption of user's configurations in cases where the change history grows very large. It also means that the change history can be managed or cleared easily and independently of other things. (change history is distinct from the website archives, which have always had their own location.)
  • Fixes problem that would prevent images from showing in the archive browser if the page in question had images but zero hyperlinks.

WW will just not do what it promises: Scan and download websites on a predefined schedule. I chose "daily" for some websites, even set a time and "comitted" the changes (why is this even necessary?) but the app refuses to run. Only manual scans work for the "daily" setting. Furthermore there is only a rudimentary browser funcionality for singel web pages, not entire sites. Why not make downloaded websites available in your own web browser? If the app should mimic the time machine concept why not use a similar UX?
