I'm looking for an application(preferably in MacOS) which can cache(locally) a webpage(available to read only upon login). The page is not available to the public and hence couldn't be archived by sites such as Wayback Machine. I googled but failed to find any such app. Saving/Printing (to PDF) the webpage every time I visit the page is very time-consuming. Is there any app with such feature? Even a chrome extension would be fine...

See some of the tools to download a site in a previous stackexchange question here e.g. GNU wget - which runs on both Apple & Windows

  • +1. Using wget you can mirror, dereference links, change absolute links to same domain to relative links, etc. very powerful tool. A simple shell script called via cron is all you need, and the tools are all there on the Mac. Good call!
