Everything I'm finding is based on URL, but I want the opposite.
I have an html index with a list of links.
The links are named like
bananas. The files associated with those are like
SID564065.zip, each with a different corresponding number. The links follow a few redirects before getting to their final destination, and from my understanding, that prevents me from using content-disposition. (Correct me if that is wrong)
I'm looking for something like a feature
youtube-dl has, where a file can be named all kinds of ways by specifying
wget is not
youtube-dl. I'm trying to find a way to make wget name the files based on the link name- The actual text that is found between the HTML anchor tags.
I have access to the initial HTML page that lists all of the files, but do not have access to the final server. A big file rename isn't feasible. If there is something I can add to the HTML(metadata to each link?) to assist
wget in it's duties, I am able to do so.
Manually making a list of links is also not feasible. I need a
wget one liner that will download all of the files on the page listing.
I am open to outside the box ideas, as long as the end result is that someone would be able to
wget -rHnp(or similar) my page and be able to download all the files with the correct names.
EDIT: I haven't gotten very far into trial and error, as I've been reading
man wget and haven't found much worth trying.
The best I could maybe think to do, which is certainly not ideal, is to specify an input file that I host, like a database, and try to do some kind of naming like that. I don't think that's a good idea, because the size of that would get out of hand quickly.
EDIT 2: The html pages that have these lists of links will be hosted on Github Pages, so not a full blown server where I can install things like jquery and node. Just a heads up.
