I love wget. Its simplicity, speed, and small size. I use wget all the time on my linux boxes, and on my macs. Sadly, there are no new binarys of wget for Mac, so you’ll have to build them yourself. This involves downloading Xcode, a massive beast with a size of over 2 GB, and compiling wget from source. It feels like such a waste to have to go through such a hassle just to compile wget. I’ve therefore compiled wget for you, and I’m distrbuting the binary file.
The version that was compiled is the greatest stable release as of now, version 1.9.1, and was compiled by Xcode version 4.1 It was compiled and tested on Mac OSX Lion,
and might or might not work on Mac OSX Snow Leopard.
I have now compiled the newest version of wget, 1.13.
The older version below will still be available for those who for any reason would still like to use this.
The binary has been confirmed to work on Snow Leopard, but you might have to mark it as an executable. The can be done via the terminal, and the command “chmod +x wget”.
