I need an open source system that can crawl websites to gather PDF documents and then index them.

  • 1
    What format should the index take? An HTML page? Something else? Should the app only look at document titles (and PDF extension), or also examine the contents?

Have you tried httrack to copy website data locally. I think you will be able to change the parameters of the httrack config and download the PDF only files as you have mentinoed here.
