Pluralsight Scraper

What is this?

This a pluralsight scraper/downloader/ripper. While not a marvel of engineering, it can automatically download individual courses and save them in a convenient format. This project does not endorse piracy and requires a valid pluralsight login to function!

Sample Output

Why?

Pluralsight doesn't have a way to play videos offline on Linux as far as I know and I wanted to play stuff offline on Linux, hence this project.

Pluralsight.com FAQ: Can I watch your videos on Linux? Available apps

How?

With nightmare. Code is short and understandable. Won't bother explaining details.

Usage

  1. Clone the repo git clone https://github.com/knyzorg/pluralsight-scraper

  2. Create a .env file and add your username, password and pluralsight course url. It's contents should look something like this:

  TARGET=https://app.pluralsight.com/library/courses/angular-2-getting-started/table-of-contents
  EMAIL=foo@exampkle.com
  PASSWORD=foo
  1. Run npm install

  2. Run npm start

Yes it is: Refer to Section 5

It throws a promise error! It doesn't work! I don't like javascript!

How tragic! This script was written in half an hour for personal use, sorry if it isn't tested properly. You are free to open issues and pull requests.

Otherwise, there is a similar project here made in python: https://github.com/Stormiix/pluralsight_scraper
