Why would you use the CLI vs the GUI or vice-versa? The CLI is generally preferable for batch or scripting scenarios where you want to process a command without user interaction. The GUI is better suited for ad-hoc work or where you want a simpler configuration interface.

Command Line Interface

  • Non-interactive
  • Does not currently support access to all WebCopy configuration options unless a pre-configured project is used
  • Uses less resources
  • Faster as no user interface to update

Graphical User Interface

  • Interactive, so will prompt users for information, e.g. passwords
  • Provides access to all WebCopy configuration options and features
  • Uses more resources due to the GUI
  • Can be slightly slower than the CLI due to the user interface having to update
