Let's download the docs from twitter bootstrap

python twbs/bootstrap -p docs

If we don't want it to be recursive

python twbs/bootstrap -p docs -r False

If we want a specific file

python twbs/bootstrap -p docs/examples/blog/index.html

If we want to download from a specific branch (say fix-15534)

python twbs/bootstrap -p docs/examples/blog/index.html -b fix-15534
