PageSuck was created by Tim Burgess and does one simple thing – it sucks down the contents of a remote URL and loads it into Brackets for editing. After downloading and installing extension, you may launch PageSuck by pressing
Option + G on OSX or
Alt + G on Windows.
At this point you can enter any valid URL, I chose cnn.com. The extension grabs the HTML for that page and then creates a new file for you in the currently active folder. The file name is based on the title tag of the HTML page retrieved. If you test with the same URL multiple times, the extension is smart enough to handle slightly changing the URL to get a new file name.
If you save the HTML and enable live connect, you can then browse the results right on your local web server. Here’s a quick video demonstrating the extension in action.The YouTube ID of u3KuJ2Gq7Bs?modestbranding=1&vq=hd720 is invalid.
