starget - copy images of starred items

In the remaining light cast by Google sunsetting Reader I wrote starget, a small command-line tool of particular use: starget copies all images referred in your (public) starred Google Reader items to a local directory. Its peculiar use case is only exceeded by its short-livedness—use before July 1, 2013.


starget url target_dir [-all]

The following options are available:

  • -all Download images of all your starred items.

To download the images of my latest starred items:

starget /tmp/starred

Add the -all option and you would literally download all of my starred images since 2007.

So, if you have starred items with images that you don't want to lose: make the starred items page public in your Google Reader settings, copy and paste the URL, and download all the images you once have starred.


Install with npm:

npm install -g starget
