Auto Save Document

Author(s):



Autosave is a small extension, which can be used to store the currently shown document in a seperate directory automatically when browsing a certain site. You may configure the sites, where all pages will be stored to cache, by adding the site adress to a list. The documents are stored as html-text only (no embedded objects like pictures etc.) The files are cyclic reused, e.g. if you set the cache size to 100, Autosave will store the document contents to X:/MyCache/Autosave_0.html ... AutoSave_100.html and start again with AutoSave_0.htm when the 101st page is browsed. A small Icon in the statusbar will change its colour each time to indicate a page was written.
If you click this small icon, the current page will be dumped, regardless if the site is in the autosave list or not.

NOTE: this extension is really, really simple! Only plain text is saved, no external .css,.js => the result may look ugly! The one and only intention for this extension is, to save the text for external parsing*) or similar! Look for Scrapbook etc. in case you want to store more than the plain text!

*) e.g. i wrote an external scanner.exe which parses all files in a special directory on creation. I used it together with this extension to scan the plain html text, parse it and extract some information, which i then put into a database.
