GetAWebAddOn version 0.97


Sometime I find useful to make a zipped copy of a whole Web from remote (for backup or offline reading).

Here I enclose a small package for zipping a whole Web.

get-a-web can be used as a link, as it gets the compression type from the URI itself

Supported File Formats

The script produces files in the formats:

  • .tar


Web Format Versions URI
Webname tar all %SCRIPTURL%/get-a-web%SCRIPTSUFFIX%/Webname/Webname.tar


  • All the data/pub/template files of the chosen web are zipped, except for the .htaccess and .htpasswd and the *.lock files.
  • User authentication can be handled with apache <Location> directive.



  • usual Add-On installation (unzip in twiki root directory)
