Client: I want a folder with every CSS and JS file we have on this old website (over 100 of them stored all over the place)
Me: egrep and curl in terminalūüí•


Impressed your client knows what CSS and JS are. Glad mine don't!

Downloading from websites is sometimes the only option. They might be minified or otherwise compressed. A beautifier can help but isn't as good as the original. If either were compiled from something else (e.g. Dart for JS or SCSS for CSS then a lot is lost).

@George An increasing number of my clients are larger companies with internal marketing or tech staff that I'm working alongside so they know their stuff. Thankfully, this was a WordPress site with minified files being called via query strings. It was actually pretty simple to grab everything for them.
