download a repo as zip gives 403 on curl
i just entered this in my terminal
and what i got?
am i doing something wrong here?
You are doing nothing wrong (except either use
curl -o whirledit.zip https://replit.com/@whms/WhirlEdit.zip to write to
whirledit.zip or use
wget like so
wget https://replit.com/@whms/WhirlEdit.zip which will automatically write to
WhirlEdit.zip, the command you entered would have printed the binary data of the zip file to your terminal which is less than useful).
The reason you are getting 403 Forbidden is that you can only download a repl you own. Normally your browser tells replit that it is you (I don't know exactly how), but when
wget accesses replit, replit doesn't know that it's you (it thinks you aren't signed in) and so denies you.
I do not know of a way to fix this, but that is why I think what happened happened.
