Yeah the image was broken for me, not sure why. The direct link fixes whatever issue: http://guerilla.bplaced.net/elGUI4Wget.png

Also, it's worth checking out even if you don't care about WGET. This is some great frontend functionality that's easy to follow and remains connected to the fundamental command line functions. I can see uses for everyone from beginners to experts.

Whoever came up with this is doing something that I hope others mimic.

there's also a GUI for FFmpeg there but maybe there are other programs that already serve this purpose

Curl v7.65.0 released, dated 22 2019-05-22 (changelog and downloads at https://curl.haxx.se/changes.html).

EDIT: relevant portability snippet from Curl manual ('> curl --manual').
On windows, if there is no _curlrc file in the home dir [i.e., '%APPDATA%'], it checks for one in the same dir the curl executable is placed.

Curl v7.68.0 released 2020-01-08 (changelog at https://curl.haxx.se/changes.html).

Wget current Windows build is still v1.20.3 (upstream changelog appears to be obsolete; Windows repo has {mostly} been live at https://eternallybored.org/misc/wget/).

[v1.20.3:] OpenSSL 1.1.1b, ZLib 1.2.11, gpgme-1.13.0, pcre2 10.32, libpsl 0.20.2, taskbar progressbar, Windows certificate store support, manual; the binaries have been updated and now work fine with SSL connections.

Quick note with a pretty straightforward recipe for creating local mirrors of online sites using wget:

www.guyrutenberg.com /2014/05/02/make-offline-mirror-of-a-site-using-wget/

In a nutshell:

Code: Select all

wget -mkEpnp http://example.org

BTW and due to the patchy update pace, it hasn't been mentioned here that the last upstream changelog for wget (v1.20 released 2018-11-30) is at http://savannah.gnu.org/forum/forum.php?forum_id=9310.

Spoiler!   
GNU Wget 1.20 Released

Item posted by Darshit Shah <darnir> on Fri 30 Nov 2018 12:14:38 AM UTC.

Noteworthy Changes in this release:
  • Add new option `--retry-on-host-error` to treat local errors as transient and hence Wget will retry to download the file after a brief waiting period.
  • Fixed multiple potential resource leaks as found by static analysis
  • Wget will now not create an empty wget-log file when running with -q and -b switches together
  • When compiled using the GnuTLS >= 3.6.3, Wget now has support for TLSv1.3
  • Now there is support for using libpcre2 for regex pattern matching
  • When downloading over FTP recursively, one can now use the --{accept,reject}-regex switches to fine-tune the downloaded files
  • Building Wget from the git sources now requires autoconf 2.63 or above. Building from the Tarballs works as it used to.
