Current state

The GUI is currently rather unstable/untested if you encounter problems with e.g. aborting a download, please just quit the entire application. I am aware of the problems, I just didn't have the peace of mind to fix them yet. Thanks

downloaded correctly

How to run

  • Install python3
  • Install python3-pip
  • Clone this repository, by either downloading it from the website or typing git clone in a terminal
  • Run pip3 install -r requirements.txt
  • Run python3


Installing python and pip
  1. Open Powershell from the Start Menu
  2. type python (and press enter), there should be a Windows Store window opening up, you can install python3 directly from there (by clicking the big fat blue install button)
  3. copy this into the powershell curl -o and press enter, it'll take a bit to download the file
  4. type python and press enter, it'll take a little bit
  5. you can close the powershell now
Downloading and running DBDT
  1. Click Here, it should download the .zip file automatically
  2. unzip the file
  3. go into the directory and double-click install_deps.bat, wait until it's done
  4. to run the program, double-click run.bat

How to setup

As of now, you need to register an application on your deviantart account. The program needs a client_id and client_secret, you can either put these in a config.txt manually (first client_id, then a space and then your client_secret), but preferably you'd just run the file and enter the values in the simple setup process.

If you have any questions or issues feel free to write an issue


In theory, it should work on all Operating Systems, but currently it's only tested on Windows and Linux

For potential contributors

I want to follow unix philosophy and all this program will ever do is download content from deviantart.
