A simple and fast download accelerator, written in Rust
Zou is a Snatch fork by @k0pernicus. Snatch is a fast and interruptable download accelerator, written in Rust, from @k0pernicus and @Jean-Serge.
- Simple: a command line tool to manage easily your downloads ;
- Fast: multithreading support ;
- Interruptable: work in progress.
NOTE: Zou is on alpha version.
This version runs well on remote contents with a length known before the download (with the
content-length header from the server response).
Let's build a better
wget (in Rust)!
- Install Rust and Cargo using rustup ;
- You can download two versions of Zou :
- the latest build from crates.io:
cargo install zou;
- the last commit version from Github:
cargo install --git https://github.com/k0pernicus/zou.git --branch devel;
- Enjoy !

Why this fork ? Snatch has been developed when I was a R&D engineer at DernierCri - it was a "just-for-fun" project. Today, I do not work anymore in/with this startup, and I want to experiment something different.
Zouis now a fun way to hack with Rust! :-)
