2.5.6

Monitor, archive, go back in time.

Overview

Website Watchman is an easy to use website archival utility.

Note: this app's name has had to be changed slightly because of a pre-existing project called Watchman. Existing licence holders shouldn't be affected.

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
  • View and be able to demonstrate what a page looked like on a particular date
  • Be aware of every change to a competitor's page / site
  • Runs locally, not a cloud service. Own your own data.
  • An archive is kept, including all changes to pages, images, style sheets and js
  • 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.

I'm not sure what the problem was when you tried but it was definitely temporary.

Thank you for the opportunity to clarify this. The message you quote applied to version 0.x which was beta. (The web page is now updated.) Since v1.0.0, it is considered stable and the expiry is removed, ie it'll work for free for good with all features (and there will be a free reader to read the web archive files it builds). As time goes on and depending on its popularity, future versions may not be free (in that case, version 1 will continue to work).
