bew: A primitive, if not effective, webcrawler

bew comes from the same mind that created album, which you might remember from early this year.


bew is tiny, but packs a punch. It does an admirable job following links through a site and pulling data down.

Webcrawlers are like hex editors to me though: It’s exceedingly rare that I should need one, and usually by the time I get one and get it working, whatever I wanted is no longer really necessary.

Regardless, to find a lightweight, small and effective one like bew … well, it’s always good to have around.
