Quick-and-dirty artstation sync

This is a personal and untested tool to keep (and update) local copies of artstation profiles via cli. Project id's are saved in order to not re-download everything. This ensures that only new media will be downloaded in each cronjob instance. No fancy bs going on. Just a simple script bodged together within 10 minutes at 3 AM.

Also supports to download search results.

Currently only working for images. Feel free to issue a pull request if you want more.

Setup

Install required pip modules.

pip3 install requests pyyaml

All scripts require Python3. Tested using 3.9.9.

Running it

Here we have three scripts:

Grab an artists profile

grab-artist.py 'mixppl'

This will grab one individual profile, in this case the user 'mixppl'. You must use the username in the profiles url! Not the full name!

Grab search results

grab-search.py 'Game of Thrones' 100

This will grab the first 100 results of the search term 'Game of Thrones'. If you omit the result limit, ALL results will be downloaded! That could be useful, if your search query is very niche. But if you omit it for a popular search term, like 'Game of Thrones', you're in for a ride, as all approx 12000 projects will be queued for download.

Automate it

Invoke downloads / a scan

grab-all.py

This will call grab-artists.py and grab-search.py on all artists and search terms listed in to-grab.yaml.

Files will be saved to ./downloads/{artist_name|search_terms}/.
Logs will be saved to ./logs/{artist_name|search_terms}.txt.
Download indices are kept in ./already_saved/{artist_name|search_terms}.txt. These are needed to skip already downloaded projects.

⚠️ Download indices are NOT shared between profiles / search queries! If an image occurs in two different search terms, it will be downloaded twice!

Configure what to download

Simply adjust to-grab.yaml to your needs. Here is an example:

--- 
artists: 
  - mixppl
  - shumolly

searches:
 -
  terms: Game of Thrones
  max: 3

 -
  terms: Pirates
  max: 3

 -
  terms: Robby Rotton

The last search term, 'Robby Rotton', is to show that you can also omit max. If you do not want to fetch artists, or searches, at all, just delete that yaml-array entirely.

A word on power usage

Do not overuse this or you might piss of artstations maintainers. Just because you CAN download 400 gigabytes of images per day doesn't mean that you should! If you plan on downloading LOADS of stuff, you should add some sleep statements to cut the servers some slack.
