A free application to download PDF and multimedia files from Hinduism Today
- Control - Only download the parts of the magazine that interest you, saving time, bandwidth and disk space. You can also choose to save the multimedia files, or stream them using any program, freeing you to enjoy the media as you see fit, for example watching a video fullscreen or burning an audio track to CD.
- Proxy Support - For those who aren't lucky enough to have direct access to the internet, the program has support for proxies of many different varieties.
- GNU/Linux Support - The official Hinduism Today client only works on Mac and Windows platforms. GetHT however works natively in GNU/Linux. It has also been written with portability in mind, and while at present it's only known to work on Linux, it shouldn't be too hard to get it to work perfectly on any of the Unices, as well as Mac and Windows platforms.
- Freedom - GetHT is distributed under the GNU General Public License V2, meaning that anyone is free to study the code making it up, change it and share it with others, providing they give others those same freedoms. See http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html for more information.
