Learn how to download and compile your website into a single executable file for desktop using HTML Executable.
In order to compile your website into a single working executable file for the desktop, HTML Executable needs source files (HTML pages, graphics, scripts...) to be available on your local computer.
A variety of offline website download tools exist, such as the free HTTrack available at HTTrack's official website. HTTrack allows you to download a World Wide Web site from the Internet to a local directory, building recursively all directories, getting HTML, images, and other files from the server to your computer. HTTrack arranges the original site's relative link-structure.
✅ First, create a local mirror copy of your website with HTTrack in a folder on your computer.
✅ Start HTML Executable, choose New Project, and select the index page of your website in the local folder created by HTTrack.
Please note, you may prefer to keep your website online and create a custom-branded web browser for your end users to navigate.
Happy compiling! 🎉
