Minimalist command line downloader written in node, inspired by wget. HTTP GETs a file and streams it into a file in the current working directory. Specializes at downloading many files in parallel.
npm install nugget -g
Usage: nugget <urls> [options] -o output filename -d output parent directory -c resume aborted download -f ignore response codes > 299 -s concurrent socket limit (default infinity) -q disable logging
nugget http://foo.com/bar.jpg # downloads bar.jpg and stores it in the current directory
nugget http://foo.com/bar.jpg -O baz.jpg # saves it as baz.jpg. you can also do lowercase -o
if you get a statusCode of 300 or greater nugget will stop. you can force it to stream the response into a file anyway by doing
nugget http://404link.com/file.html -f or
--force works too
you can also download multiple files, just pass multiple urls:
The following options are recognized by nugget:
-s|--sockets- default Infinity. specify the number of http sockets to use at once (this controls concurrency)
-o|-O|--out- specify the filename to write to. this only works if you are downloading a single file
-d|--dir- save files in a directory other than the current one.
-c|--continue- resume downloads if a partially complete target file already exists. If the target file exists and is the same size as the remote file, nothing will be done.
-f|--force- force the server response to be saved to the target file, even if it's a non-successful status code.
-q|--quiet- disable logging
--no-strict-ssl- disable strict ssl
--proxy- specify a proxy to use
