Update: I’m having some trouble to compile a working release of Wget2 2.0.0. Please use v1.99.2 meanwhile. You can also contribute by trying to compile it (https://gitlab.com/gnuwget/wget2). Thanks for your patience.

Note: I’m now working on a Wget2 2.0.0 release. Please be patient – it will take me some time

Wget2 is the next-generation non-interactive command-line content downloader. It will be the successor of Wget.

It comes with new features, such as file compression and multi threaded downloads. You can view the full comparison table in this link.

Originally, Wget2 was designed and compiled for Linux-based systems, but I have successfully compiled it for Windows (using i686-w64-mingw32).

Also, it includes libwget, so you will be able to develop applications using Wget2 (very unstable).

If you are interested, you can download Wget2 for windows through the button below.

Please read before using Wget2 and libwget:

Wget2 is currently under development and it isn’t specifically designed for Windows, so it may be very unstable. Please do not use it for serious things. Also, there are currently some functions that doesn’t work as intended on Windows, such as:

  • –progress bar

However, it is very useful to quickly download files from the internet.
