Class: QgsFileDownloader

class qgis.core.QgsFileDownloader(url: QUrl, outputFileName: str, authcfg: str = '', delayStart: bool = False)

Bases: PyQt5.QtCore.QObject

QgsFileDownloader

Parameters:
  • url – the download url
  • outputFileName – file name where the downloaded content will be stored
  • authcfg – optionally apply this authentication configuration
  • delayStart – if True, the download will not be commenced immediately and must be triggered by a later call to startDownload(). This can be useful if connections need to be made to the downloader and there’s a chance the download will emit signals before these connections have been made.

QgsFileDownloader is a utility class for downloading files.

To use this class, it is necessary to pass the URL and an output file name as arguments to the constructor, the download will start immediately.

The download is asynchronous.

The object will destroy itself when the request completes, errors or is canceled. An optional authentication configuration can be specified.
