This is a simple script to bulk download all the photos from an Aura digital picture frame (auraframes.com). Aura provides no easy way to bulk download photos off of frames so I created this for use with Python 3.

Hello, the script is great, but will only download the first 1000 pics.

Can you explain how to run this? When I installed Python 3 and ran the module, I get the error ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'requests'

Thanks!

Hello,

I had to install the "requests" module after installing Python3 on Windows.

Also, I added the line: elif item["file_name"].endswith(".jpg"):
new_filename = new_filename + ".jpg"
to the script as some files were jpg

Thanks! How do you install the requests module?

This is great; downloading now! The key to getting this to work was to use the command:

"python3" rather than "python" in terminal, and drag the python script from the finder window into terminal so the script could execute from the path where I had it on my system.

So my actual command line in terminal (on a Mac) was as follows:

python3 /Users/rich/Downloads/aura-frame-downloader-main/download-aura-photos.py

Thank you for creating this excellent tool!

It's been a while since I have done any kind of programming, and I'm not familiar with Python. I'm getting the following error:

= RESTART: C:\Users\ljlod\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python311\Scripts\download-aura-photos.py
Login Success
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\Users\ljlod\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python311\Scripts\download-aura-photos.py", line 101, in

File "C:\Users\ljlod\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python311\Scripts\download-aura-photos.py", line 58, in download_photos_from_aura
for item in json_data["assets"]:

Any suggestions would be helpful,
Thanks

Did you change the limit parameter to a value other than 1000? It needs to be set to 1000 or else the API will return an error

@bourgLind

No, the limit is still 1000 as seen below:

frame_url = "https://api.pushd.com/v5/frames/" + frame_id + "/assets.json?limit=1000&side_load_users=false"

@doc10101

As noted by another user, while the script worked, it only downloaded 1000 pictures; I have over 2000 on the frame. Is there any way to change the limiter?

I don't have a frame with that many photos so I can't really test this. Also, the API fails if I just increase the limit over 1000 so I'll have to investigate this further. Could you open an issue on this repo please and continue the discussion there? https://github.com/meub/aura-frame-downloader

This is great! Thank you.

Nice job. Do you know the API verb to upload images? Is the Aura API documented somewhere?
