One of the main problems when testing website is to look for broken links. A site may have thousands of links which can be targeting both internal and external content, so it may take long time to cover those links and eventually you may leave dozens or hundreds of links untested.
Here is where LinkCrawler comes in…
LinkCrawler is a Java Desktop application capable to “Crawl” a site and return a report of the status of all the links present at the site. By providing an intuitive UI, you can test all those links and have a nice HTML5 in just a few mins.
Here are some key features of 'LinkCrawler':
- Crawls entire website getting all link statuses
- A clean Java FX UI
- Generates HTML, JSON and Excel Report
- Works on Windows, Linux and MacOS
Suitable for Web Designers/Developers, but my intention is to also help QA engineers, who may need a quick free tool for Website testing.
In comparison to others, this is a really small app but it performs the job as expected. The features are evolving on every version, there are two social media channel on which I listen to any feedback. My main objective is to evolve linkcrawler into a must-have tool for every situation and not just sporadic website testing, I would like to reach areas like continuous integration or make it a tool of a greater suite of software.
