I would like to recursively download all files from the subfolders of the root folder that I designate in a website running Blackboard.

I know that Chrome and Firefox have add-ons (DownLoadthemall and Getthemall, respectively) to do something like this, but they don't download recursively. Are there any add-ons that do this recursively?

I would write a script to do it in Python, but Blackboard requires a password / might give me issues trying to crawl it.

A browser add-on is preferred, but a stand-alone tool would be fine, too.

  • Could be a duplicate depending on how the site is password protected.

  • (1) With "blackboard", are you referring to blackboard.com? (2) Must the solution be a browser add-on (for Chrome and/or Firefox, or any browser at all?), or can it be a stand-alone tool?

  • Yes, blackboard.com--the site all the schools use. I would prefer a browser add-on, but a stand-alone tool would be fine.
