I often need to download sets of links from a webpage and it's very inefficient having to click all the links one by one. For example, at the moment I want to download the lecture notes on this webpage. Is there some way I can batch download them? I am using Linux and Firefox in case that information is useful


This line of code will download each pdf from the page.
It's quick and dirty and could probably be optimized (especially since I'm using both curl and wget):

for file in $(curl https://ocw.mit.edu/courses/mathematics/18-102-introduction-to-functional-analysis-spring-2009/lecture-notes/ | grep .pdf | cut -d'"' -f2); do wget https://ocw.mit.edu/$file; done
  • wget -A pdf -m -p -E -k -K -np https://ocw.mit.edu/courses/mathematics/18-102-introduction-to-functional-analysis-spring-2009/lecture-notes/
