Free, fast, clean. DownThemAll?

What is DownThemAll?

DownThemAll (or just dTa) is a powerful yet easy-to-use Mozilla Firefox extension that adds new advanced download capabilities to your browser.
DownThemAll lets you download all the links or images contained in a webpage and much more: you can refine your downloads by fully customizable criteria to get only what you really want.
DownThemAll is all you can desire from a download manager: it features an advanced accelerator that increases speed up to 400%, it allows you to pause and resume downloads at any time and, last but not least, it's fully integrated into your favorite browser!

(Lack of) Progress December 21, 2017

Sorry again, but I got a bit overwhelmed with/distracted by other stuff so could work less on DownThemAll! Lite than I anticipated, and I also keep running into limitations/quirks/bugs/idiocrasies of the WebExtension APIs (and sometimes HTML5 stuff as implemented by Firefox).

So, even though I wanted to have something presentable by now, I failed my self-set deadline once more.

While my development version can make *some* simple downloads already, there is still problems with other more complicated types of downloads that need e.g. special handling of headers. And downloading large files is still far from what I expect/want performance-wise.

I’ll stop promising certain dates at this point. I will only promise that I’ll work as quick as possible.

For the curious: I started writing the first bits of code back in late August and worked on it since then (of course not full-time, as it doesn’t pay my bills). Now the “big” to-do items are mostly done, and what’s left is to get all the nitty-gritty details and edge cases right, or at least right enough that I won’t be ashamed about the product.

Delays… November 10, 2017

Initially I planned to have a release version of DownThemAll! Lite (aka the WebExtension) ready for launch of Firefox Quantum. Well, Quantum will be released in a few days from now, and DTA Lite is not nearly ready.

There were some bits that turned out to be more fiddly than I anticipated, then some freelancing work (what actually pays my rent) took longer than anticipated, and then some medical stuff (nothing to worry, but still preventing me from spending the time I originally planned for DTA) and other personal stuff… This all completely made me miss my timeline I planned.
Please bear in mind that essentially DTA Lite, even tho it’s only “lite”, will be more or a less a complete rewrite, even though it will reuse a lot of the concepts.

Therefore, looking at my calendar, DTA Lite will take another month at least. I hope I’ll get to a point where I can release a beta version for early adopters/testers in 2-3 weeks and then 1-2 weeks after that a stable full release.
In the mean time, there is still the full DownThemAll! which can be used with at least the pre-Quantium Firefox (such as the ESR)*.

I’d also really like to rant how stupid and limited most of the WebExtensions APIs are, but I feel I ranted too much already.

The manager tab, recently, with some demo downloads I used to test how stuff will look like. The design is still a work in progress.

* (technically, it still even works in Quantum Nightly, with some minor changes and a lot of “convincing”, because, again, mozilla’s reason to disable legacy extensions is not a technical need due to Quantum but entirely a political decision at this point)

Another day, another let down by mozilla
