    I am looking for mac software (preferably but not necessarily open-source) that downloads an entire web site. By "entire" I mean everything, the whole structure within the domain, including any links to media files.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you.

    wget is what you want. There are pre-compiled versions for the OS X Terminal. It requires a little finessing to get a functional version of an existing site (and in cases where it's merely retrieving dynamically recreated data might not always be possible), but it's usually pretty doable. Just read the --help options and see what you need. There are a couple presets available, intended to help with common tasks, but you might need to look into creating your own set of customized rules to get the result you want.

    There is an extension for Firefox called Scrapbook that works well for downloading an entire website.
