I'd like to install a program from sourceforge sources. Is there a way to download the latest stable source from SourceForge? an example for ntopng would be very welcome.

    as the link to latest ource is http://sourceforge.net/projects/ntop/files/latest/download?source=files Do you try wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/ntop/files/latest/download?source=files ?

  • @Kiwy ah thanks, I didn't realise wget was able to download a file via a link like that. i've always done it with direct links

I'm pretty sure you can use wget and SourceForge, always use the url for the latest source.


Where $$PROJECT_URL$$ needs to be replace by the part of url corresponding to the project. for ntopng ==> ntop which gives you:

wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/ntop/files/latest/download?source=files
