Download visual novel metadata and screenshots from vndb.org
vndb_dl is a command-line utility that allows to download VN metadata and screenshots from vndb.org.
vndb_dl can be used from the command line. You can either specify an id to use with the -i option:
$ vndb_dl -i 7
or an vndb.org url:
$ vndb_dl -u https://vndb.org/v7
Bulk downloading is supported with ranges:
$ vndb_dl -i 7-12, 14 # Will download vns with id [7; 12] and vn with id 14
By default, vn_dl will output metadata about each vn in a metadata.txt and metadata.json file. To disable either or both of these, set their flags to false:
$ vndb_dl -i 7 -j False -p False
By default, vndb_dl will output into the working directory. You can change the directory with the directory flag:
$ vndb_dl -i 7-12 -d download_folder
This covers full usage of vndb_dl.
