I'd like to automatically save the text of every web page I visit, to it's own corresponding text document, not html document. I am not looking to save all the styling and additional repeated html tables etc of code and other un-needed wasted bytes. I would love to be able to save the valuable information only, just the text information from every web page visited.
So I imagine the files of web-page text could be saved looking something like this.
and contain only the corresponding web page's text only inside of the document. Kinda exactly like my xclip script below but save the entire page automatically. Gathering filename title from the corresponding web-page's
Can this be done? Possibly with the help of the app 'xclip'? I imagine probably not on it's own. Since 'xclip' doesn't do things automatically, I don't think...
Currently I am using 'xclip' to save text that I select after pressing a keyboard shortcut.
Like so, for example... if you wanted to save this selected text below:
In my case, I would press: Ctrl + Shift + X
would then save a file that looks like this:
and inside of that file would look like this:
I'd like to be able to do the same thing, but instead of selecting and saving the text I want, it would save the entire page, (like if you were to use Ctrl + A) and then save the content, and append a filename with the website's title, automatically, every page.
Thank you very much in advance for your valuable time.
Oh and if anyone wants to use my
xclip-save-selection.sh script, here it is:
