Download files using curl or wget. This addon generates curl/wget commands that emulate the request as though it's coming from your browser allowing you to download protected files directly to a separate machine (e.g. server).
About this Add-on
This addon adds entries to the context menu as well as the download dialog to copy commands to clipboard. By default, it only generates commands for curl. But you can enable wget from about:config under extensions.cliget.
You can add your own parameters to be included in the commands. Set that under "cliget.curl.options" in about:config.
If you use curl or wget on Windows, make sure to enable "cliget.use_double_quotes" in about:config because Windows doesn't support single quotes. If you use cygwin, however, you don't need to enable this option.
Please be aware of potential security and privacy implications from cookies exposed in the download commands.
