dlfile

dlfile is a very simple, straightforward CLI to download a file, except it...

  1. Only downloads over HTTPS
  2. Requires TLS 1.2 or higher
  3. Executes in a seccomp sandbox (linux only - no sandboxing provided on other platforms, PRs welcome)
  4. Uses trust-dns, supporting DNS over TLS

cargo install dlfile
