A few months back I was working on rewriting Imgur Album Downloader to the more feature filled Reddit Image Downloader.
Judging by some of the comments I have seen it seems there is still interest in the project being completed. I am sorry to say that I have not been actively working on Reddit Image Downloader lately as most of my work is being put towards my newly re-written Android app Amazon App Notifier as it now has over 10,000 active users.
The source code for Reddit Image Downloader is currently hosted over on GitHub with a comment stating that it is “Discontinued”. That is somewhat correct as I have not touched the repository for quite some time and don’t know if I will get back to working on it anytime soon. I know this news may be disappointing to hear, however as the program is open source anyone is more than welcome to continue the project. If someone does I am more than willing to help get things started again.
Sorry again if this news disappoints anyone. If there seems to be high demand for the project to start back up again I may reconsider.
I have recently completed most of the work on the backend of the application and just have to write the UI before a working copy of the program is released. Above is a preview of the log output the backend generates when given my Reddit username (I don’t post many images as you can see).
Also, as it stands right now I am still going for a “When it is done” timeline for release. For the most up to date information on the program, I suggest seeing the wiki I have over at Github. And as I mentioned before, the program is open source so feel free to let me know any suggestions you may have or help you would like to offer. 🙂
First of all I apologize for the prolonged silence on the status of updates for Imgur Album Downloader. The program was originally written by me back in March/April for me to get practice for job interviews. Now that I have a new job doing Java development my time to dedicate to the program has greatly dwindled (although Steam Sales and Skyrim are also to blame).
Now for those of you wondering when the next update for Imgur Album Downloader will be coming… well I don’t have any more plans to update it. Recently Imgur has added the feature to download albums right from their website, making half of the need for my program no longer necessary. Now don’t fret, as I know a lot of users used my program to download images from a Reddit user. I have plans to create a brand new program for that feature from scratch with a new back-end, different functionality, and a new user interface. The program will be completely open source with the source code hosted over at Github. I have no ETA on the release as work on this is in the very early stages, however you are welcome to suggest any features you would like to see as well as help with the development.
I want to thank you all for the many downloads and suggestions I got for Imgur Album Downloader and I hope when I do release this new program you will agree it is better than Imgur Album Downloader.
Thanks For Listening,
