Uru Library Manager (an alternative)

Uru Library Manager (ULM) has become the default way of sharing and downloading user-created content for Uru. It basically handles a list of Ages, and a list of files for each Age with mirrors and checksums.

The main issue with ULM is the fact that it’s written using .NET 2.0. I can’t make it run on Linux.

I finally got around to writing a CLI-based Python script to download Ages from ULM into the current directory.

#! /usr/bin/env python

# We should ignore SIGPIPE when using pycurl.NOSIGNAL - see
# the libcurl tutorial for more info.

    from signal import SIGPIPE, SIG_IGN
    signal.signal(signal.SIGPIPE, signal.SIG_IGN)
except ImportError:

def getAges():
    sio = StringIO.StringIO()

    c = pycurl.Curl()
    c.setopt(c.URL, baseurl + '/LinkingBooks.txt')
    c.setopt(c.HTTPGET, True)
    c.setopt(pycurl.WRITEFUNCTION, sio.write)
    c.setopt(c.VERBOSE, 0)

    return sio.getvalue().splitlines()

    while i < len(lines):
        line = lines[i].strip()
        if line is '' or line.isspace():
            i += 1
            lncount += 1

        m = re.search("(?<=[[]version )\d(?=[]])", line)

    Thanks for that script :)
    However, ULM ran great for me on Linux (till I uninstalled it), using wine and installing the .NET Framework 2 in it.
