# Websites Supported by the Default Distribution * 4chan

# Features Supported by the Default Distribution * Downloading all files present.

# Installation Arch Linux users are encouraged to install Chandere using Pacman, as it is packaged in the [AUR.][4]

` $ # If the PKGBUILD is in the current working directory: $ makepkg -si `

If you are running a distribution for which Chandere is not yet packaged, or are not running Linux, the recommended means of installation is through Pip.

` $ # It is recommended that you use the latest version of pip and setuptools when installing Chandere. # pip install --upgrade pip setuptools # pip install --upgrade chandere ` in the repository’s root directory can be used if Pip is not available, however this is not recommended.

` # python install `

If Chandere is installed with Pip or, manpages will have to be manually moved to your manpath.

` $ make doc # cp docs/*.1.gz /usr/share/man/man1 # The destination path may be different on your system. `

# Examples

` chandere /fit/17018018 `

Download all images from ‘’ into the current working directory, preserving the original filenames.

` chandere -o "{index}.{ext}" /fit/17018018 `

Perform the same as the above, but instead save every image to a filename containing the index at which it was encountered.

` chandere /tech/ -w 8chan `

Download all images from ‘’.

# Extending
