Downloads exported files and folders from Mega.nz. Handles links like:

When downloading individual files, these are placed into <path>. When downloading folders, the contents of the folder are placed into directory specified by <path>.

To export files, you can use Mega.nz web application, or megals(1)'s --export option.

--path <path>

Local directory to download to. Defaults to the current working directory.

If <path> is -, remote file will be streamed to stdout.

--no-progress
Disable download progress reporting. This is implied when streaming.
--print-names
Print names/paths of successfully downloaded files (one per line).
--speed-limit <speed>
Set maximum allowed upload and download speed in KiB/s. This option overrides config file settings. 0 means no limit.
--proxy <proxy>

Use proxy server to connect to mega.nz. This option overrides config file settings. More information can be found in libcurl documentation at https://curl.haxx.se/libcurl/c/CURLOPT_PROXY.html. Some acceptable values are:

  • none : Disable proxy if it was enabled in the config file.
  • socks5://localhost:9050 : Local SOCKSv5 proxy server
  • socks5h://localhost:9050 : Local SOCKSv5 proxy server with DNS handled by the proxy
--config <path>
Load configuration from a file
--ignore-config-file

--debug [<options>]

Enable debugging of various aspects of the megatools operation. You may enable multiple debugging options separated by commas. (eg. --debug api,fs)

Available options are:

  • api: Dump Mega.nz API calls
  • fs: Dump Mega.nz filesystem (may require --reload to actually print something)
  • cache: Dump cache contents
--version
Show version information
<links>
File and folder links to download from.
<filelink>
Link to exported file to stream.

Mega.nz filesystem is represented as a tree of nodes of various types. Nodes are identified by a 8 character node handles (eg. 7Fdi3ZjC). Structure of the filesystem is not encrypted.

Megatools maps node tree structure to a traditional filesystem paths (eg. /Root/SomeFile.DAT).

NOTE: By the nature of Mega.nz storage, several files in the directory can have the same name. To allow access to such files, the names of conflicting files are extended by appending dot and their node handle like this:

/Root/conflictingfile /Root/conflictingfile.7Fdi3ZjC /Root/conflictingfile.mEU23aSD

You need to be aware of several special folders:

/Root
Writable directory representing the root of the filesystem.
/Trash
Trash directory where Mega.nz web client moves deleted files. This directory is not used by megatools when removing files.
/Inbox
Not sure.
/Contacts
Directory containing subdirectories representing your contacts list. If you want to add contacts to the list, simply create subdirectory named after the contact you want to add.
/Contacts/<email>
Directories representing individual contacts in your contacts list. These directories contain folders that others shared with you. All shared files are read-only, at the moment.
