Is there a way to download an entire Blogspot blog in HTML format, without the ads and associated cruft?

Just my two cents ... Winhttrack?

  • Well, I usually use this application to download from Artofmanliness and such blogs. Saves the site completely, so I have a browsable archive on my laptop ... I can read useful stuff on the bus/train. :)) – Apache Aug 15 '11 at 12:31
  • Any advice how to configure it to go around "content warning" no blogs that require to click "I agree" ? – Grzegorz Wierzowiecki Jan 26 at 10:00

Perl has several good modules for doing this.

LWP:
Mechanize:

Both can be found on http://search.cpan.org

From the command line, when this tool is called, you can recursively grab all files in the directory by typing wget -r sitename.

Wget: http://www.gnu.org/software/wget/

As for out of the box software that you can use on a GUI, I am of no help.

For the owners of the blog... Google provides the functionality to download the entire blog (posts, comments, the whole nine yards).

In case of content from other people's blog, copyright violation comes into the picture.

Use an adblocker add-on in your browser to remove the ads.

Then, use the "save as" feature in your browser to save the page in HTML.

  • I guess he means downloading the whole blog. – slhck Aug 14 '11 at 21:40
  • Yes I do. This blog has 2,578 posts. :-) I'm not doing them all by hand. – robert_nachos Aug 14 '11 at 22:25
