ObexMGET is a command line tool to connect to OBEX compliant devices (typically mobile phones via bluetooth/infra red) and retrieve multiple files from a directory based on regular expressions.

I wrote this because the only thing I found that worked well for multiple file copying from OBEX devices was the KDE bluetooth stack. Since I don’t run KDE, 100MB of libraries just for copying files is a bit unacceptable. I just wanted to copy all the pictures and videos off my phone every so often!

A couple of scripts are included to show how I wrap up obexmget in bash to reduce copying all pictures/videos off my Nokia 6680 to a single command.

Requires Python and ObexFTP (from the OpenOBEX project)
