Axel needs your help. If you are a programmer and want to help a nice project, this is your opportunity.
Axel was imported from its old repository1 to GitHub (the original homepage and developers are inactive).
If you are interested in helping Axel, please read the CONTRIBUTING.md file.
Additionally, there is a group to discuss and to coordinate the
development process3. You can also find other developers in the
#axel channel on freenode.
Axel tries to accelerate the download process by using multiple connections per file, and can also balance the load between different servers.
Axel tries to be as light as possible, so it might be useful on byte-critical systems.
Axel supports HTTP, HTTPS, FTP and FTPS protocols.
Thanks to the original developer of Axel, Wilmer van der Gaast, and everyone else who has contributed to it.
Release tarballs contain a pre-generated buildsystem, but if you need to
edit/patch it, or you're building from a copy of the repository, then you may
need to run
autoreconf -i to generate it. Further instructions are provided in
the INSTALL file. The basic actions for most users are:
./configure && make && make install
To build without SSL/TLS support, use
libssl(OpenSSL, LibreSSL or compatible) -- for SSL/TLS support.
$ autoreconf -fiv $ ./configure && make && sudo make install
brew install axel
Install the following homebrew packages:
brew install autoconf-archive automake gettext openssl
You'll need to provide some extra options to autotools so it can find gettext and openssl.
GETTEXT=/usr/local/opt/gettext OPENSSL=/usr/local/opt/openssl PATH="$GETTEXT/bin:$PATH" autoreconf -fiv -I$GETTEXT/share/aclocal/ CFLAGS="-I$GETTEXT/include -I$OPENSSL/include" \ LDFLAGS=-L$GETTEXT/lib ./configure
You can just run
make as usual after these steps.
