Grabber - image downloader

#1 Post by webfork » Thu Jul 03, 2014 4:22 pm

This sounded great on Softpedia but this pulls from only a few sites on a narrow, non-PG topic, so I quit testing midway through. As it's open source, hopefully someone can take this and put together something that just uses different boards since the interface works well.

Home:
http://www.bionus.fr.cr/imgbrd-grabber/

Softpedia:
http://www.softpedia.com/get/Internet/D ... bber.shtml

License: Apache 2.0

Test results: Not portable (so far)

Sofpedia does not list the latest version, download from http://www.bionus.fr.cr/imgbrd-grabber/downloads.html

Uniextract worked for me.

Btw, it's open source... see http://www.bionus.fr.cr/imgbrd-grabber/source.html

No worries. The installer was build with Inno Setup... maybe you need to update the Inno Setup Unpacker file in the Universal Extractor's "bin" folder?

I'm guessing this could be used for forum threads, too? Would be more useful to me that way, especially if it could exclude images below a certain filesize or dimension (filtering out such things as site assets and avatars).

Yes, with some modification. However, it looks like it's more than just modifying some config files. The websites appeared to be built into the program rather than just reading it off some included config file. I think you'd have to dig into the code a little.

Old thread update: update is out for this (v4.0.5) ... still seems to just focus on Anime sites.

Doesn't look like there's any change in portability.
