Roboget automates the process of getting downloads and apps directly. 

It is a free and portable package Manager for Windows 10, 8.1 and 8 with focus on safe and direct download links. Roboget acts also as a GUI for Wget and cURL.

Wget supports HTTP, HTTPS, and FTP protocols, as well as retrieval through HTTP proxies.
cURL is shipped on Windows 10 over 1706. Beside this also the external download manager JDownloader can be integrated to intercept download links from Roboget.

 

The main features of Roboget

  1. Automating and direct downloading of apps
  2. No need to hunt for a download of a program or the developer's homepage anymore
  3. Download multiple apps at once
  4. Integrated Wget, cURL and JDownloader support
  5. Simple scripting engine for adding custom packages

Download jobs for Roboget can be written and extended via "packages", plain text files which define exactly which download links the program should preserve.

Roboget is currently in beta stage and limited in apps. Everyone is welcome to contribute and write download packages. You can reach us via GitHub.
