WTSize let's you check the size of a remote file without downloading it.
On the road with a limited data plan or bad network and want to know if it's safe to download a particular remote file? WTSize (what the size) is a small Python 3 CLI app which checks the size of remote files without downloading them (by looking at the Content-Length header).
>>> wtsize https://site.tld/some_big_file.zip 822.24 MiB
wtsize URL wtsize URL [--unit=MiB] wtsize -h | --help wtsize --version
pip install wtsize
- Not all servers return a Content-Length header so you might be unable to get the actual file size without, well, downloading the file.
wtsizewill tell you if that's the case.
- In some cases the Content-Length cannot be known before accessing the body (dynamic content)
- Headers can easily be spoofed. Generally, though, there's a good chance that the Content-Length header in the server response is accurate.
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
