Small app that grabs all pdf files from a specified Blackboard link

This should now work with most any course/degree scheme some slight changes would be needed as I cannot have access to all other courses to test.

Also for ease of use it would be nice if a GUI was added, I'll try and do this in the future after more features are added.

Install first

pip install bs4 requests

Usage

python3 ./main.py [-u|-url] <AberLearn Module URL> [-h]

If no URL is specified, the crawler scans Blackboard for any and all available modules to download.

Linux:

  1. Download the contents of dist
  2. In terminal locate the dist folder and cd into it
  3. Run "./main"
  4. Enter username and password

Other OSs

  1. From a command line/terminal
  2. pip install bs4
  3. python main.py
You can’t perform that action at this time.
