Software News   Software News : ClipDown v1.0 - Assists with download from OWB!
   posted by ktadd on 12-Feb-2009 4:20:28 (2291 reads)
ClipDown v1.0 has just been uploaded to OS4Depot.
It was developed to make downloading from OWB fairly painless until proper support can be added.

Read more..


ClipDown is a small OS4 utility to download web pages and files (via 'wget') pointed to by HTTP: and FTP: protocal URL's that reside in clipboard unit 0. It allows for capturing files from the WEB by cutting a URL to the clipboard, then clicking the "Download Clip" button in ClipDown's window. It includes options to choose a public screen for it to reside on so it is easily accessable. It was initially designed to allow for easy downloads from the OS4 version of OWB (Origyn Web Broswer) until internal support is added but can be used independent of OWB. Just set the screen option to the workbench screen or any other public screen.

Please let me know if you find this useful little utility useful.

Link to download from OS4Depot: ClipDown_v1.0

I use this script with IconX with the OWBLauncher to start OWB then ClipDown:

-----------
OWBLauncher
WaitForPort OWB.1
Work:Utils/ClipDown/ClipDown" -s origynwebbrowser -x 967 -y 5
-----------

Replace the path with your path and the -x, -y, options with value where you would like the ClipDown window to be placed. OWBLauncher helps to insure the OWB screen is open before ClipDown is started. The down side is you have to quit ClipDown in addition to OWB for the screen to close.

Check out the ClipDown.guide file for additional options and details..

Thought with respect to downloading and OWB.

Some sites may only allow the download if logged in. Cutting the url alone in this case might not work. Could ClipDown access OWB cookies? I have afeeling the change just made to OWB WRT might make this more difficult, as if I read correctly it only saves them out onec per session now...

Although that I use the fine Charon, it is good to see new utilities for OWB.

ClipDown v1.2 had just been uploaded to OS4Depot.

Version 1.2 adds the ability to slect four different download modes via a new menu..
The following download modes are now available:

1. Download Files / Pages with no images. (Original operation)

2. Download Full Page including images with directory structure mirrored locally.

3. Downlaod Full Page including images into a single directory.

4. Download Full Page including all pages and images linked up to 1 level down. This allows getting a single page with all linked pages and graphics working locally.
(Caution should be used when using this mode as a lot of files could be downloaded.)

See CliipDown.guide for more details
