We recently added the ability to both upload and download files using the Windows command line / PowerShell. Also, I'm happy to say that you can download ShareByLink files on any operating system using the wget command line tool!
Here's how easy it is. Just open the command window (aka "DOS box" or cmd), and type:
(When you install ShareByLink, it sets itself up in the Windows path for easy access. If you just installed ShareByLink, then remember you'll need to close and re-open any command windows or PowerShell windows for the path to update.)
One question is whether the upload ability will be provided to MacOS and Linux. (Right now, you can download, but not upload.)
As a Mac user, obviously this is something I want. But there's a lot of things that the project contributors are working on, so I'm not sure about when that's going to happen. I'll be sure to update this blog when it does.
