README.md

Borrow

Download albums from bandcamp. The program will only use the publicly generated URLs that get used for streaming, as a result only the 128kbps/16-bit files are available. These are files that would be put on your computer as a part of streaming the songs from the site anyway. Additionally, it will only download songs that are freely streamable, not ones that there is no stream for but come with an album purchase. That said, the authors of this software make no claims regarding the legality of its usage in your jurisdiction and, per the license terms, are not liable for your usage of the software. During creation and testing of the software only music for which the authors were legal rights holders was downloaded.

Usage

borrow -path /home/someuser/Music/ https://someband.bandcamp.com/album/somealbum

Using the above, borrow will extract the artist, album, and track names and save the files to the given path. The path is optional and the current directory will be used if it is not present.

You can, at your option, override the artist and album names with the -artist and -album` flags.

Check out borrow -h for info.o

Borrow will utilize golang's concurrency features to download the files at the same time (concurrently), so it should be pretty snappy.

Building

You just need a go compiler then run make to build to the current directory or sudo make install to install it.
