Python3 script to download archive.org books in PDF format !
There are many great books available on https://openlibrary.org/ and https://archive.org/, however, you can only borrow them for 1 hour to 14 days and you don't have the option to download it as a PDF to read it offline or share it with your friends. I created this program to solve this problem and retrieve the original book in pdf format for FREE !
Of course, the download takes a few minutes depending on the number of pages and the quality of the images you have selected. You must also create an account on https://archive.org/ for the script to work.
To get started you need to have python3 installed. If it is not the case you can download it here : https://www.python.org/downloads/
Make sure you've already git installed. Then you can run the following commands to get the scripts on your computer:
git clone https://github.com/MiniGlome/Archive.org-Downloader.git cd Archive.org-Downloader
The script requires the modules
img2pdf, you can install them all at once with this command:
pip install -r requirements.txt
usage: archive-org-downloader.py [-h] -e EMAIL -p PASSWORD [-u URL] [-d DIR] [-f FILE] [-r RESOLUTION] [-t THREADS] [-j] optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit -e EMAIL, --email EMAIL Your archive.org email -p PASSWORD, --password PASSWORD Your archive.org password -u URL, --url URL Link to the book (https://archive.org/details/XXXX). You can use this argument several times to download multiple books -d DIR, --dir DIR Output directory -f FILE, --file FILE File where are stored the URLs of the books to download -r RESOLUTION, --resolution RESOLUTION Image resolution (10 to 0, 0 is the highest), [default 3] -t THREADS, --threads THREADS Maximum number of threads, [default 50] -j, --jpg Output to individual JPG's rather then a PDF
password fields are required, so to use this script you must have a registered account on archive.org.
-r argument specifies the resolution of the images (0 is the best quality).
The PDF are downloaded in the current folder
This command will download the 3 books as pdf in the best possible quality. To only downlaod the individual images you can use
python3 archive-org-downloader.py -e [email protected] -p Passw0rd -r 0 -u https://archive.org/details/IntermediatePython -u https://archive.org/details/horrorgamispooky0000bidd_m7r1 -u https://archive.org/details/elblabladelosge00gaut
If you want to download a lot of books in a raw you can paste the urls of the books in a .txt file (one per line) and use
python3 archive-org-downloader.py -e [email protected] -p Passw0rd --file books_to_download.txt
