"aria2fe" (the "fe" stands for "FrontEnd") is a graphical user interface (GUI)
for the command line (CLI) based program aria2. aria2fe was designed and
constructed using C++/Qt for the GNU Unix/Posix/Linux platform.
Essentially, the purpose of aria2fe is to construct the aria2 command line
syntax and arguments from a point and click environment and to launch aria2
via xterm. Download progress monitoring is done through xterm acting as a
console for aria2fe. In fact, once aria2 has been started, aria2fe can be
closed which will free up the system resources (physical memory) allocated to
it. xterm will continue its role as console until the download is complete.
Depending upon the type of download being done the command line for aria2 can
become quite long and complex. Given that, the chance for errors (typos and
incorrect arguments) increases dramatically. aria2fe diminishes the chance for
errors by delivering a syntactically correct command line each and every
time. Furthermore, the ability to "visualize" the command line being
constructed aids the user in argument selection. Additionally, command line
configurations can be saved to a "conf" file and reloaded for future
use. There is no limit to the number of conf files a user may have at any one
given time and a browse dialog expedites the finding and loading process for
saved configurations.
aria2 is a high-speed download utility with resuming and segmented
downloading. Supported protocols are HTTP/HTTPS/FTP and BitTorrent. It also
supports Metalink version 3.0. As of 0.10.0 aria2 supports chunk checksums in
Metalink. It validates chunk checksums while downloading files like
BitTorrents. This provides a safer and more reliable download experience. It
is being actively developed by Tatsuhiro Tsujikawa.
