Programmatic download from "Downloads" Edited

I have some files stored in the "Downloads" section of a repo.

If I try to download the file programmatically, say with wget, I get a "401 Unauthorized" error.

How can I fix this? I read something about OAuth but that seems to pertain only to account manipulation and repository operations.

So you know my specific problem, I want to store a Python source distribution on Bitbucket and use "pip" to install directly from there. However, "pip" fails without saying exactly why so I investigated with "wget" leading to the abovementioned error.

You need to pass in the Authorization header as part of your wget call. For Bitbucket, you need to create an application password from your Profile. Then with wget, you would call

wget --http-user=USERNAME --http-password=PASSWORD

where USERNAME is your bitbucket username and password is the app password that you created. I'm not sure how you would pass this in with pip.

Yes! This was indeed helpful but didn't work at first. The reason, as I found here is that you have to use an API endpoint. When I did that, it worked. Thanks.
