I want a program that works in this fashion:

  1. I give the program criteria for the types of files I want (example: file type, title, or even all files within a certain website)
  2. It searches the websites I tell it to look through and downloads all files meeting that criteria (example: I could say that I want to download all files of type .jpg from a website that have the word "cat" in the title. The program would download all relevant files and I would not have to point it to each link individually, saving me time)
  3. It organizes the files it downloads into certain folders also based on criteria that I define (Say I had folders named "calico", "black", and "orange" and I told the program to organize the files based on what was in the title of the images downloaded. Therefore a .jpg image named calicocat.jpg would go into the calico folder)
  4. It assigns relevant tags to each file it downloads, "relevant" tags are also defined by me
  5. I can then search this database of files I have collected by title, or by any of the tags the files have been assigned

    You could do what you want using keepvid.com and bookmarking. A software is never ever can be able to know what is an appropriate folder.

  • Raystafarian, I think you are exaggerating when you say very difficult, my English was clear. However, I do think that this nice little list is a more convenient format for people to read. Let me know if it is still unclear to you. I certainly hope I will find a response relevant to what I am looking for now. Oct 13, 2014 at 2:15

    @arelevantuser would you provide some examples of criteria? For example, would you need natural language processing or just regular expressions? Would each be a small program?
