Humble Download

03 Mar 2015

HumbleDownload is used for downloading / making a complete back-up of your library from Humble Bundle to your computer. It will download everything: games, books, music etc and try to group them together in folders based on the names (which isn’t perfect unfortunately).

Build the project

First, install Elixir.

Execute the following from the project root:

mix deps.get
mix escript.build

This will create the executable file “humble_download” which can be run on any system which has the Erlang runtime installed.

./humble_download <input file> <download folder>

Create the input file

Copy-paste the code from humbledownload.js in to the developer console in your browser when you’re viewing your library on the Humble Bundle site. Copy-paste the result to a new text-file and use it as the input file as described above. The file should have three lines per item in your library: folder name, filename, link.


The links are timed-based and will expire. When that happens, create another input file as before and restart humble_download with the new input file. The previously downloaded files will not be downloaded again.
