Bash Script Podcatcher

March 29, 2007 at 11:54 pm 1 comment

Yeah, I know there’s bashpodder, but it doesn’t store podcasts like I want. I like to keep each of my podcasts in a separate directory without having new podcasts dumped into a “today’s” folder (although on a podcast by podcast basis this might not be bad), and it’s just not as flexible as I’d like it to be. So I decided to make my own.

Main Features:

  • keeps podcasts in separate directories
  • has each podcast keep track of its own downloaded files
  • uses *.info file to store metadata about a podcast (will eventually be used for retagging)

Any feedback and suggestions are welcome. Name suggestions are also welcome. 😉

— EDIT —

WordPress kept cutting out some of the code, so I put it on a pastebin. You can find the complete script here.
