GDown - Download Files Directly From Google Drive

This should help a lot of googlers, apologies for the sloppy writing as I am not a content editor type and mods can clean it up.

Been searching a way to download large files from google drive via curl/wget and I almost gave up! And there she was,


Install PIP:
Centos/Rhel :

yum -y install python-pip


apt install python3-pip

Install gdown:

pip install gdown

How to use Gdown:

Example Google Drive file link

gdown --id 123 -O myfile.extension


Awesome, this will definitely come in handy! Thanks for sharing :slight_smile:

Obligatory Shitpost

I like my G-down low, down low, down low, down low, down low, down low, down low


This is really useful. Thank you.
