Tucan is an open-source application created to automatically manage downloads and uploads to and from direct download sites. Completely designed in Python, it is worth thanking the programmers for not using Java, that during its development was the most used programming language for this type of application, and that has the inconvenience of making them rather unstable.

Open-source download manager

Being an application that is still in alpha stage, Tucan still has a long and rather promising road ahead. Up to the moment it has plug-ins that will allow it to interact with Rapidshare, Megaupload, Gigasize, Mediafire, 4Shared and Sendspace.

Depending on the site, it will be able to jump the captcha, manage Premium access (for those that are subscribed), and manage the waiting time between downloads. We were pleasantly surprised by the application's download speed and that it all worked in the first try, something that can't be said about the majority of the rivals.

If there is something that makes this application different from the other download managers is its simplicity and efficiency. A very interesting option that should be tracked for future changes.
