Python script to download all images/webms of a 4chan thread
The main script is called inb4404.py and can be called like this:
python inb4404.py [thread/filename]
usage: inb4404.py [-h] [-c] [-d] [-l] [-n] [-r] thread positional arguments: thread url of the thread (or filename; one url per line) optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit -c, --with-counter show a counter next the the image that has been downloaded -d, --date show date as well -l, --less show less information (surpresses checking messages) -n, --use-names use thread names instead of the thread ids (...4chan.org/board/thread/thread-id/thread-name) -r, --reload reload the queue file every 5 minutes
You can parse a file instead of a thread url. In this file you can put as many links as you want, you just have to make sure that there's one url per line. A line is considered to be a url if the first 4 letters of the line start with 'http'.
If you use the --use-names argument, the thread name is used to name the respective thread directory instead of the thread id.
This is a work-in-progress script but basic functionality is already given. If you call the script like
python thread-watcher.py -b vg -q mhg -f queue.txt -n "Monster Hunter"
then it looks for all threads that include
mhg inside the
vg board, stores the thread url into
queue.txt and adds
/Monster-Hunter at the end of the url so that you can use the --use-names argument from the actual download script.
The current scripts are written in python3, in case you still use python2 you can use an old version of the script inside the legacy directory.
