About webcheck

webcheck is a website checking tool for webmasters. It crawls a given website and generates a number of reports. The whole system is pluggable allowing easily adding extra reports and checks.

Features of webcheck include:

  • support for http, https, ftp and file schemes
  • view the structure of a site
  • track down broken links
  • find potentially outdated and new pages
  • list links pointing to external sites
  • can run without user intervention

webcheck is still in development. I'm working towards a 2.0 release with most of the changes as described on the TODO list. This probably means that the formatting of the output will change.
