I've been playing around with using Selenium for automating the boring task of downloading files from the Nexus. The nice thing about Selenium is it doesn't really circumvent the Nexus, since it's literally just a macro system for controlling your browser. I'd need to check the ToS to make sure its kosher though.
Would this be wanted? Selenium doesn't capture any information from your browser specifically, and it does have dependencies--The only browser I'm sure this would work with is Firefox. Unfortunately this does mean it can't monitor downloads. So the only way to have it fully automated is for it to just download all files in one go.
I'm thinking you'd probably just package a JSON file with a mapping of "LinkName":"URL", and it would automate opening each link, going through the necessary menus, and downloading them.
Also I should note, in my limited testing, it seems like the Selenium WebDriver for Firefox doesn't reuse existing cookies. This means that you'd be required to pass your Nexus creds in plaintext to the utility in order for it to login on your behalf.
