Using Bing Wallpapers in Linux


Just written a simple python script to get fancy Bing Wallpapers on my Linux desktop. Usage:

python3 bing_wallpaper_fetch.py -c 8 -d ~/Pictures/Wallpapers

So the script may be added to /etc/crontab to fetch the latest wallpaper every day. After being fetched, the images are picked up and displayed by amazing vrty application.

Note: due to the Bing’s API limitation, only the last 16 images are available for download – to be fixed later
