Webcheck a Python Website Checker

Webcheck is a nice tool written in Python 2.4. Given a URL to a website it crawls the whole site and generates a nice HTML report.

I use it to…

  • … get the structure of a site.
  • … check if a site would index well with search engines.
  • … track down broken links.
  • … list links pointing to external sites.

You can download webcheck from Arthur de Jong’s website.

I started it this way from the commandline:

cd /var/_test/webcheck;
./webcheck.py -f -o /var/_test/webcheck/report http://www.my-site.com/;

You can get help and find out about further options by typing:

./webcheck.py --help
