SingleFile

SingleFile is a WebExtension compatible with Chrome, Firefox (Desktop and Mobile), and Opera that helps you to save a complete web page into a single HTML file.

Demo

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RdV8DBW5b0g

Install

Getting started

  • Wait until the page is fully loaded, you may need to scroll down the entire page to be sure all elements are loaded.
  • Click on the SingleFile button in the extension toolbar to save the page.

Additional notes

  • To save multiple tabs, select them first and click on the SingleFile button.
  • Open the context menu by right-clicking the SingleFile button in the extension toolbar or on the webpage. It allows you to save:
    • the current tab,
    • or the selected content,
    • or the selected frame.
  • You can also process multiple tabs in one click and save:
    • the selected tabs,
    • or the unpinned tabs,
    • or all the tabs.
  • The context menu also allows you to activate the auto-save of:
    • the current tab,
    • or the unpinned tabs,
    • or all the tabs.
  • With auto-save active, pages are automatically saved every time after being loaded (or before being unloaded if not).
  • Right-click on the SingleFile button and select "Options"/"Manage extension" to open the options page.
  • The default save folder is the download folder configured in your browser, cf. about:preferences in Firefox and chrome://settings in Chrome.
  • You can use the shortcut Ctrl+Shift+X to save current or selected tabs in Chrome. Go to chrome://extensions/shortcuts to change it.

More info

See the extension help in the options page for more detailed information about the options, and technical notes. See https://github.com/gildas-lormeau/SingleFile/wiki/Optimizations-applied-to-web-pages for some info about the optimizations applied to web pages.

Statistics (Firefox)

See https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/single-file/statistics/?last=90

Known Issues

  • All browsers:
  • Chrome/Opera:
    • You must enable the option "Allow access to file URLs" in the extension page to display the infobar when viewing a saved page, or to save a page stored on the filesystem.

Troubleshooting unknown issues

Please follow these steps if you find an unknown issue:

  • Reset SingleFile options.
  • If resetting options did not fix the issue, try to disable all other extensions to see if there is a conflict.
  • If there is a conflict then try to determine against which extension(s).
  • Please report the issue with a short description describing how to reproduce the issue, Browser version, OS name and version here: https://github.com/gildas-lormeau/SingleFile/issues.
