PL Gallery Grabber

Grabs the latest gallery images, useful if you like having gallery images for desktop background

Requires Python 3.

Note: This project is no longer maintained, and the Planet gallery does not appear to be updated anymore. I am not affliated anymore with Planet and have no plans to further maintain this repository.


  1. Clone repository with git clone
  2. Go into directory: cd pl-gallery-grabber
  3. Install requirements: pip install -r requirements.txt
  4. Run the Python script, passing in directory to download to (otherwise downloads to current directory) e.g.: ./ ~/Backgrounds/

Note: Ensure target directory already exists.
