Back to bricks list
Introduction Version


Download external files that are required by a task. To init this class, you need to provide the brick name of the task and the message dispatcher of the task. For example: TaskFileDownloader(brick_name=MyTaskClass.get_brick_name(), message_dispatcher=self.message_dispatcher)

It is recommended to use MyTaskClass.get_brick_name() because this defines the destination of the downloader file. With this, the destination will be the same even is your task is overriden by another task (and the file will not be duplicated).
