Download/Upload Files From/to File Sharing Websites Using command line Plowshare #CLI

Plowshare is command line applications helps you to download files from many file sharing websites, and upload files as well. I really liked the idea of downloading from file sharing websites using terminal without opening the web browser or seeing any of these pop-up advertising on many of those file sharing websites.

I used it on few file sharing websites listed on plowshare page many of them worked fine for downloading and uploading. Unfortunately it didn’t work on couple websites ” mediafire, zshare ”  couldn’t get the key for the uploaded files.

plowshare supports Megaupload, Rapidshare, 2Shared, 4Shared, ZShare, Badongo,, Depositfiles, Mediafire,,,,, Sendspace, Usershare, and some others
