Download a file in a location of a bitbucket server project repo

Hi, 

I want to download a single file from a repo that's on a Bitbucket server. Is there any example API that I can use? 

Thanks

Navigate to the file you want to download using Bitbucket Server's "Source" view (e.g., http://vm.bit-booster.com/bitbucket/projects/BB/repos/aui/browse).  Once you've identified the file you want to download, look for the "Raw File" link.

Example: http://vm.bit-booster.com/bitbucket/projects/BB/repos/aui/browse/CONTRIBUTING.md  (notice the "Raw File" link?).

These links go to my demo Bitbucket server instance.  They might require that you login.  If so, the username is "test" and the password is "test".

p.s.  I invite you to try my Bitbucket and JIRA add-ons.  Bit-Booster Commit Graph and More (for Bitbucket), and Git Graph for JIRA.

We use Bitbucket Server Archive Plugin to download single files during our automated build process.

Having this plugin installed on your Bitbucket server you can locally retrieve single files (or a selection of files or all files ...) from Bitbucket via a simple git archive ...

For mor details see: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1125476/retrieve-a-single-file-from-a-repository

This might be slightly irrelevant, but for binary files, there is a workaround

 

  1. in your browser, navigate to where the file is
  2. click on the file
  3. click on the option "view raw"
  4. you will be promoted to downloading the file

 

Most other files can also be downloaded similarly, you can use "open raw" option and save the promoted new tab, textual files will be saved in the format you want.

This technique won't be working for me :/
