Interesting and usefull tool. I'm testing it with very recent urls posted on the Arch Forum.

Unfortunately the last commits to the github repo were in 2019. The last tagged release was also in 2019, 0.2.2,

According to,, this should be possible:

jtara1 Fork - Features

  • Here's some examples of the types of links that are now supported:


But I'm not able to download from urls of type, I have to explicitly type the extension ".jpg" ,

Example with recent links posted on the Arch Forum:

$ imgur_downloader

Fails with :

$ imgur_downloader

Works. Not sure, if this is a problem with, this PKGBUILD, or with the upstream github repo. I'm more inclined to think its the upstream repo.

Missing dependency python-pip (and optionally python-wheel).

python-click should be marked as a dependency
