Not ftp.aminet.net, just aminet.net

Downloading stuff is not a problem. We we're discussing other things, like having recent uploads displayed after connecting to the server, searching for files and getting files listed the same way they're listed in the web interface (one line per file containing filename, size, path and short description) instead of looking at a list of files in a directory.

I was thinking at something that allows you to *search* and *download* packages directly from aminet website...

I am not a developer, so I am not able to say if that is *at least* possible.
I am pretty sure that aminet does not have an API, so it would be some dirty html parsing...
I am just thinking loud...

what do you think guys?
Thoughts, ideas?

cheers,
Hi: I've just seen this thread. I've only read the first post thought.

My answer is AmiKit Real. You've got an icon on screen, "Aminet". You just click on it and it opens -with internet connection- the FTP site where you can download whatever. This is a 16 colors screenshot:



BTW I made another similar icon-script that isn't included -and won't be- in the AKReal distro that makes the same with the EAB File Server. You can find it here:

EDIT: BTW, hey, I didn't know we already can watch Youtube videos here!! That's great

Accessing Aminet using FTP is not the problem — I do that all the time. Finding where your file is — that is the problem. You can of course keep a local copy of the INDEX file, but searching that takes time even on a 68040.

Hmm.. is AmiKit using a script for the FTP too? As it seems to be using Magellan2, you don't need any scripts for getting FTP sites on desktop. You can just drag&drop any FTP site from Opus FTP addressbook to desktop and save layout, and that's it, you'll get connected to the wanted FTP site whenever you click the icon.

If the Aminet WWW server could install an additional HTTP endpoint that returns search results in a structured, easily parsable format, a command line client would be easy to do.

The following ADT files are accessible via HTTP (*):

http://aminet.net/info/adt/tree
http://aminet.net/info/adt/ADT_RECENT_14
http://aminet.net/info/adt/ADT_RECENT_60

GZipped versions are available as well, just append .gz to the filename.

listing files inside a particular directory could be done using the search engine (just like the normal web interface does), same for actual search results. We can easily tailor the format of the search results, one such custom job already exists, just append &format=pre to any search results:

http://aminet.net/search?query=test&format=pre

(this one was done for amiga-news.de's 'Weekly Aminet uploads' news items). We could also provide a completely custom results page (i.e. minus header/footer etc.).

(*) there's also http://aminet.net/info/adt/ADT_LOCAL for the complete index of files, but I wouldn't use that one in a lightweight client, plus it seems to have a small bug right now

Something like JSON should be nicely parsable.

Or just the old ADT format. The first field is a UNIX timestamp, right?

Thinking about it, we might have to define a new format - old ADT doesn't support "Architecture:". As I said, we're happy to provide whatever is required.

Yes. From left to right:

time, path, filename, filesize, readmesize, (L)ocal or (R)emote (ignore that one), short
