Download any or all Ozy and Millie comics

Project description

Ozy and Millie Archive CLI

oam-dl is inspired by and based on xkcd-dl by Tasdik Rahman, which was inspired by youtube-dl by Daniel Bolton.

It archives the less memetic yet superior (:P) Ozy and Millie by Dana Simpson, which ran from 1998 to 2008.


  • Download all Ozy and Millie comics.
  • Download individual Ozy and Millie comics by release number.
  • Download ranges of Ozy and Millie comics by release number.


It’s on PyPI: pip3 install oam-dl


After installing, run oam-dl --create. This creates a json file in your home directory that stores information on each of the comics.


Downloading a comic will create a directory structure in your home directory under ~/OAM to automatically organize your comics by year and month. You can specify a path other than ~ with the --path command, and --pathc to create your path if it doesn’t already exist.

  • oam-dl --download <NUM> retrieves the Ozy and Millie comic with releasenumber <NUM>.
  • oam-dl --download -a retrieves every Ozy and Millie comic. There are >2000 of them, so the download may take a while.
  • oam-dl --download -r <START> <END> retieves the range of comics betweenrelease numbers <START> and <END>.
  • oam-dl --download [option] --path=path/to/directory creates the archive at that path.
