Multi-platform desktop application with the included SiteOne Crawler, which will help you analyze the entire website in depth and recommend improvements, or export sitemap or an offline version of the entire website

SiteOne Crawler GUI (desktop application)

This is a desktop application to very useful command-line tool SiteOne Crawler (watch video) and is ready for all major platforms - Windows (x64), macOS (x64, arm64) and Linux (x64, arm64).

The goal of this desktop application is to enable comfortable use of SiteOne Crawler even for users without the need to work with the command line.

Step 1 - Installation

  1. Go to the releases section.
  2. Download the latest ready version of the installer for your platform (Windows, macOS, Linux) and architecture (x64, arm64).
  3. Install the application.

Step 2 - Usage

  1. Run the installed application - you can find it in your system under the name SiteOne Crawler.
  2. Enter the URL of your website.
  3. Set optional options. Regular users will be fine with the basic configuration form. Advanced users can also use the form for full settings, without limiting the values. The content of these 2 forms is synchronized so you can use them both.
  4. Start crawling.
  5. Wait for the crawling to finish.
  6. On the Result tab, you can open a detailed HTML report or download the report as JSON or TXT. If you have set, you can view the generated offline version of your website or download the sitemap xml/txt files.
  7. All generated content (reports, offline websites, cache, etc.) is stored in the folder SiteOne-Crawler on your desktop.
  8. Take a look at the website and study all the possibilities of use.
  9. Enjoy the tool and send us feedback if you have suggestions for improvement.

For Developers

Important note

This app was written over several evenings with an emphasis on useful functionality and ease of use. Both the functionality and the graphical interface were developed continuously.

The structure of the code is not optimal and the components are not ideally distributed. Sharing state between components is also not optimal.

In the next versions, refactoring will take place with the aim of better dividing the responsibilities of individual components.

If anyone is interested in helping with the development, please open an issue on GitHub. However, I would like to implement other functionalities only after the mentioned refactoring.

Tech Stack


# checkout repository
git checkout
cd siteone-crawler-gui

# initialize and download submodule with command-line SiteOne Crawler into src/siteone-crawler
git submodule update --init --recursive

# install dependencies
npm install


# run development server - it will open an Electron app with hot-reloading
$ npm run dev


Note: In the first version, I did not emphasize the treatment of all problems reported by svelte-check. Therefore, to create a build, it is necessary to remove npm run typecheck && from build script in package.json. If anyone wants to participate in the development of this GUI application, I will be happy for help and pull requests.
