yarmd - Yet Another Recursive Multi-thread Downloader
A recursive downloader parsing Nginx's autoindex page, and depends on
aria2 for multi-thread downloading and easy interrupting / resuming.
Recently I've set up a PT (Private Tracker) seedbox on one of my servers for better downloading / uploading speed than my local computer.
It works really well, but one problem bothers me a lot - that I could not find a great recursive downloader (
wget supports recursive mode but it can only download with single connection.).
This is really something when I pulled a large torrent that is made up of a directory and want to download them back to my PC.
Thus, I wrote this script.
Usage: yarmd [-h] [-n count] [-d directory] URL Yet Another Recursive Multi-thread Downloader. This program downloads recursively from an Nginx server with autoindex enabled. If you want to resume a previous download, just make sure the parameters remain the same. Please note that this program ONLY supports servers with NGINX autoindex, and it requires Aria2 to work! Options: -n, --threads The number of threads while downloading a file. [default: 3] -d, --directory Directory to download into. YARMD will create a new directory in that directory named with the directory to download. [default: "$PWD"] -h, --help Print help information [default: false]
aria2 has done all the stuff (except recursive download) greatly. Rewriting the download logic by myself can only bring more problems. Thus, we just call aria2c for every single file.
