Yes, see

Yes, but you need to use a robot like GNU WGet to first crawl those sites
onto the same machine, then index it using SWISH-E. Since WGet will crawl
the sites into directories named with the host name, and keep the
directory hierarchy intact, it is a simple operation to send the user off
the that remote site using a program to parse the SWISH-E results. I
and others have done this.
