Latest commit 260eb16 Sep 11, 2014 @macearl macearl Update README.markdown

README.markdown

It seems that wallbase.cc was shutdown, as of now no one knows why (apparently the domain was paid for till 2015) I will leave this Script online in case anyone needs it for a similar project. Also i just moved the Wallhaven.cc Stuff to another Repository and i will continue to work on that script (more actively once wallhaven actually hits beta status) New Repo can be found here: Wallhaven Downloader

wallbase.cc is an excellent site to download wallpapers with an option to search through the wallpapers database which are tagged.
But with literally a huge database it takes ages to download the wallpapers to browse and download.
So if you are in a hurry just use the wallbase script to leech the wallpapers of the site and then sort them at your leisure.

This Script is written for GNU Linux, it should work under Mac OS
