tumblrImageDownloader

Intro

This little program downloads all the images of tumblr page.

Since I needed this only once for myself the code is quite hacky and dirty. But since it done it's job, I guess it might be also useful to someone else.

How to use it

java -jar tumblrImageDownloader [sitename...] [options...]

You can specify more than one site. Either you provide a full URL like e.g. http://spongebob-closeups.tumblr.com/ or just the name of the tumblr site (spongebob-closeups).

Available options are:

  • -p[path] Specify download directory
  • -ds don't stop downloading a site after the first image was found which has been already downloaded
  • -u Check for updates. This option will search for subdirectories in the destination directory and use the subdirectory-name as the name of the tumblr-page.

If you are not providing any download directory, images will be saved in: [home-directory]/tumblrImages/ For each specified sitename a subdirectory is created into which the images are downloaded.

What's missing / Known quirks

  • The program does not distinguish between different dimensions of an image, if several are provided, rather downloads them all.
  • You cannot pass a parameter to start with page x
  • No filtering (for e.g. filesize, dimension, format, etc.)
  • The code is a mess. Really. Every time an exception occurred I just surrounded the line with a try-catch. The "parsing" of the HTML... well... it's messy. Do not expect this program to work if tumblr decides to change anything in their HTML.
  • Way too much debugging output.
