Do you read the MagPi magazine published by the Raspberry Pi foundation? Do you know it's free to download? Do you want every copy ever made? Do you want it for free?

Using wget you can get each and every copy with just one simple command:

Code: Select all

sudo mkdir /mnt/HDD/MagPi

cd /mnt/HDD/MagPi

wget https://magazines-static.raspberrypi.org/magpi/issues/MagPi{01..82}.pdf
The first line is to make a directory to place the files into. This is dependent on where you have a hard drive mounted too. In my case /mnt/HDD, your case could differ. If in doubt use /home/pi/MagPi
The Second line is simple, move into that folder you've just made
The third line is where the magic happens :)

wget (this is the command that goes to fetch the files) https://magazines-static.raspberrypi.org/magpi/issues/(this is the address where the magazine is on the internet)MagPi{01..82}.pdf (this is the filename, starting at 01 through to 82. The dot dot tells wget to increase the number until it reaches 82)

If you can't run this command try

Code: Select all

sudo wget https://magazines-static.raspberrypi.org/magpi/issues/MagPi{01..82}.pdf
