Downloads files via HTTP. Can download a list of files from an HTML5 manifest. My use-case is generating a static distribution of my webapp by downloading it from the local development server, which does minification/compilation/etc.

Getting Started

Install this grunt plugin next to your project's grunt.js gruntfile with: npm install grunt-download

Then add it to your project's grunt.js gruntfile, for example:


    download: {
        webapp_release: {
          url: 'http://localhost:8081/manifest.appcache',
          manifest: true,
          filename: 'webapp/dist/'
        somefile: {
          url: 'http://localhost:8081/file.json',
          manifest: false,
          filename: 'webapp/dist/'


In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using grunt.
