A simple, cross-platform tool to bulk-download blobs from an Azure storage container.

Though limited in scope, it does some things official tools don't:

Install

npm install --global azure-blob-container-download

Options

Usage: abcd [options]

Options:
  --account           Storage account (or set AZURE_STORAGE_ACCOUNT)  [string]
  --key               Storage access key (or set AZURE_STORAGE_ACCESS_KEY)  [string]
  --containerPattern  Regular expression filter for container names  [string]
  --blobPattern       Regular expression filter for blob names  [string]
  --startDate         Starting date for blobs  [string]
  --endDate           Ending date for blobs  [string]
  --snapshots         True to include blob snapshots  [boolean]
  --version           Show version number  [boolean]
  --help              Show help  [boolean]

Examples

Get help:

azure-blob-container-download --help

Or get help using the short name:

abcd --help

Download all blobs in a storage account:

abcd --account ACCOUNT --key KEY

Or set environment variables AZURE_STORAGE_ACCOUNT and AZURE_STORAGE_ACCESS_KEY first:

abcd

Include blob snapshots:

abcd --snapshots

Filter by last modified date of each blob:

abcd --startDate 2016-02-13 --endDate 2016-08-04

Filter by container name and/or blob name using regular expressions:

abcd --containerPattern container --blobPattern "blobs?"

Note: Some regular expression characters require escaping on the command line. The output from azure-blob-container-download shows when this happens.

For example (Windows):

C:\>abcd --containerPattern ^text
Downloading blobs in account from [beginning of time] to [end of time].
Listing containers in account matching /text/...

The leading ^ character of the --containerPattern has been lost by the shell. It can be recovered by quoting the parameter:

C:\>abcd --containerPattern "^text"
Downloading blobs in account from [beginning of time] to [end of time].
Listing containers in account matching /^text/...
