GOG Galaxy Plugins Downloader

Summary

This program downloads GOG Galaxy 2.0 Plugins and installs them to the proper location.

You probably do not want to use this software anymore.

As of the Galaxy 2.0 Euporie update, released November 19th, 2019, the GOG Galaxy client automatically downloads and updates plugins from within the Integrations screens. You should install plugins using GOG Galaxy itself, not this software.

However, not all plugins are available from the GOG Galaxy interface. If you are interested in those other plugins, this program may be beneficial to you.

The plugins are from Mixaill's excellent Awesome GOG Galaxy repository. If you'd like to see a plugin included in this program, please request it be added to that project first.
