Deep within the labyrinthine layers of OS X, there lies an untapped wealth of programming power (how’s that for alliteration?). Even for us Masters of the Mac, UNIX is shrouded in mystery. However, with enterprising entrepreneurs like HexCat, we common folk can tap into that power.
DeepVacuum is one of those apps that harnesses the power of the underside of OSX. It wraps the wget function in a nice Mac shell that allows users to download copies of web pages or entire sites to a local drive – a boon to website designers for cost estimation and to developers for code review. It even maintains the folder structure and can also download related files like images and movies. Helpful if you forgot the FTP access info for your or your client’s website and need to grab a copy. It’s only $12, for crying out loud! Just go buy it.
