Simple bot to download pictures from listal

For example, if you want to download all images in listal from inception just type:

listal -u http://www.listal.com/movie/inception

If you want all the pictures from the director:

listal -u http://www.listal.com/christopher-nolan

Or if you are on the naughty side and want the pictures of diCaprio or Ellen Page try:

listal -u http://www.listal.com/leonardo-dicaprio
listal -u http://www.listal.com/ellen-page

All pictures are downloaded by default to target/resource_name but you can change this with the -o option.

I used to have 5 concurrent pages at a time, but OSX EMFILE was giving me problems, so I set it to two.

If by any weird reason someone starts using this, open issues to address all the stuff I didn't bother doing:

  • Exposing timeout to quit
  • Exposing number of concurrent pages
  • Better handling of the -u option, for example accept bad urls
  • Better code in some areas.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
