Curl file from Downloads page?

I have a few files on the downloads page on my bitbucket repository. Is there a way I can download these files from the command line using the SSH key I've stored with my account? Or what's the easiest way to do it?

I figured out my own answer. I'm not sure why it wasn't working when I was trying before... Part of the problem was that at some point the file became corrupted (i.e., I couldn't even download it from a browser).

curl --user username -L -O  https://bitbucket.org/account/repo/downloads/myfile.tar.gz

@Amos Anderson: "Is there a way I can download these files from the command line using the SSH key"

In my experience, you don't even need the SSH key.

"what's the easiest way to do it?"

`curl` should work, but I usually use `wget` just because the latter handles redirection better. E.g. (file < 10 kB, syntax=bash)

URI='https://bitbucket.org/tlroche/lightningnox/downloads/Makefile.2006.06'
DIR='/tmp'              # or wherever you wanna save it
FN="$(basename ${URI})" # or whatever you wanna call it
FP="${DIR}/${FN}"       # full path
wget -c -O ${FP} ${URI}

Hi Tom, thanks for the answer. It's a private repository, so some kind of authentication is needed. Here's what I get:

wget --ask-password --user=username -c https://bitbucket.org/account/repo/downloads/largefile.tar.gz
