pirate-get is a convenient command line tool (inspired by APT) to speed up your trip to the Pirate Bay and get your completely legal torrents more quickly.
Make sure you have python 3.4 and pip installed. On Ubuntu 14.04 you may also need to install the libxslt1-dev and libxml2-dev packages.
pip3 install pirate-get
