How to use wget to pull a file from BitBucket?

In case a specific file needs to be downloaded wget works pretty well -<repository>/raw/<tag>/<path to file>. But if I need to download all files present under a branch - I am using following command line -

wget -N --reject "index.html*" -e robots=off --user='#####' --password='#####' -l1 -r -np

Nothing gets downloaded. It works well with SVN. What command line updates we need to make for BitBucket?

OR Git clone is the only option for such a scenario?

Hey Kirtesh,

I found this answer in another forum. You need to add files to the Downloads section in each repo, and then you're able to get a download link for those files for the below code.


curl --user username -L -O

Thank you very much. This worked like a charm.

This worked for me for a while but now I always get a 403 Forbidden in response. Anyone else run into that?

I think what you're after is covered by git archive.
