ImageRetriever is a Django app to help you get the missing image from the server when developping (for example when you get a fresh database and don't want to download again the 3Gb of images for the few images you miss since last sync).
If you're using buildout, just add 'imageretriever' to your list of eggs.
If not, you can install the egg to your python setup using:
You can also download the sources and add them to your local environment.
Using image retriever
Start the django shell, then type:
from imageretriever.utils import sync_images
It will list all image fields in the models and download them if they are not on your local filesystem.
You can also specify the number of milliseconds between each image download (to avoid being too agressive with the server) and if you want more information:
sync_images('http://localhost:8000/', 'http://example.com/', 100, True)
