A friend asked me for a way to download all the PDFs from a page, and I made -all-the-linksrelated-documents-on-a-webpage-using-python. The command above will download every single PDF linked from the URL http:// soundofheaven.info The “-r” switch tells wget to. The script will get a list of all soundofheaven.info files on the website and dump it to the command line output and to a textfile in the working directory.

Yes it's possible. for downloading pdf files you don't even need to use Beautiful Soup or Scrapy. Downloading from python is very straight. But then it was like 22 pdfs and I was not in the mood to click all 22 links so I figured I will just write a python script to do that for me. Download all the pdfs linked on a given webpage .

It works but is not the optimum way to do so as it involves downloading the file for checking the header.
So if the file is large, this will do nothing but waste bandwidth. I looked into the requests documentation and found a better way to do it. That way involved just fetching the headers of a url before actually downloading it. This allows us to skip downloading files which weren't meant to be downloaded.
To restrict download by file size, we can get the filesize from the Content-Length header and then do suitable comparisons. We can parse the url to get the filename.
Example - http: This will be give the filename in some cases correctly. However, there are times when the filename information is not present in the url.
Example, something like http: In that case, the Content-Disposition header will contain the filename information. Here is how to fetch it.
The url-parsing code in conjuction with the above method to get filename from Content-Disposition header will work for most of the cases. Use them and test the results.
These are my 2 cents on downloading files using requests in Python.
