Well, I finally released it.

I've been using it for some time now, and it look stable enough for me to publish it online.

What does it do? You see all your favorite you've been getting? Well, this software save them for you on your disk. Just put your username, or any other deviant username, and it will download all the favorite to your machine.

Very convenient to keep an offline copy of all the arts you love. You can even use the downloaded file for a slide show, screen saver or wall paper.

Personally, I have a gadget that display the arts taken from the download folder and play them in a small slideshow gadget
deviantART Favorites download by Dragoniade

Get it at sourceforge @…

**** Update ****
Version 1.0.1 has been uploaded.

It fix a validation issue with Windows 7/Vista when using the default location.  Those using their own custom location (c:deviantART for instance) were unaffected.

**** Update ****
Version 1.1.0 has been released.

* Added Support for custom searcher.
* Added the notion of Document, Images and Video
* Added and set as default the RSS searcher. This is a solution for DA pulling the Stream Difi and not offering any support.
* Added the ability to download a user gallery rather than only the favorites.
* Forced throttling to 5 seconds minimum and applied it to every 20 requests. This is due to the RSS feed not supplying filename and having to do a request to retrieve it.

So yes, you can now download an artist full gallery by setting their username and picking gallery in the preference.

I can't get it to start and everything is zipped. When I try to unzip it, it gives a bunch of errors.

Version 1.2 stopped working, at least with collections...

Great tool, thank you! Although I seem to have a problem with downloading collections. My version is 1.2.0. The download path is set like this: F:\Art\My DA collection\%collection%\%filename%. Skip Collections is unchecked. Yet it doesn't create folders for each of my collections, it downloads everything into one folder (My DA collection). I thought maybe it is because all of my favorites are also in Featured. I removed a part of my faves from Featured folder, so that they remained only in their respectful collections. But it still downloaded them into the parent folder, My DA collection. Maybe I am doing something wrong? Thank you.

I was able to take the da-favorite.jar and put it on my Mac.  Works perfectly!

Just curious how the next update is progressing?  re: Higher res pic's only found via the download button.

Right now I am using a semi-automatic process using firefox with Down load them all addon with autohotkey (the semi-part).
It works but with limits.

My review of the problem shows me.  It's possible to get the high res pic (under the download button).  By sending the href link to
the DTA addon.  This leads to a possible solution of sending the link to an external downloader, instead of using your internal
hget process.  At least until you figure it out.

Another possible solution.  I would love a right-click context option to click from the gallery view into the artwork.  Then send the
download link to the downloader.  If the download link does not exist then send the larger res pic under the smaller pic in view.
If the right-click option is available.  Then a review before download is possible.  Instead of a all or nothing approach.

Would love to hear back

Hopefully, I'm catching up on my backlog and I should be able to resume working on the utility next week.
Since Deviant Art's staff are uncooperative with an API, I'll have to resolve to have people to log in and do some pages crawling.

I hope if people would ask enough for an API at… and… , it would speed up the creation of a worthwhile API.

Make sure you have Java installed on your computer.

Holy geez. Is it able to target just individual folders?
