multicurl

multicurl is a npm module that allows you to download files while accelerating download speed by using multiple connections. It uses the curl executable to download the parts and uses cat to merge the files afterwards.

Usage

var multicurl = require("multicurl");

var download = new multicurl("http://www.speedtest.qsc.de/1MB.qsc", {
  connections: 3, // The amout of connections used (default: 3)
  destination: "/tmp/something", // The destination path (required)
});

download.on("progress", function (bytesDone, bytesTotal) {
  console.log(bytesDone, "of", bytesTotal, "bytes loaded");
});

download.on("done", function () {
  console.log("Done downloading");
});

download.run();
