One-liner: get image URLs from Google Image search

Let’s search for “red apple”:

For Solaris (use gsed instead of sed):

curl -A "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; SunOS i86pc; rv:52.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/52.0" \
'https://www.google.nl/search?q=red+apple&tbm=isch' 2>/dev/null | \ 
tail -1 | gsed -e 's/,"ow":/*/g' -e 's/,"ou":/*Image:/g' | \ 
tr '*' '\n' | grep "^Image" | sed -e 's/^Image:"//' -e 's/"$//' 

For Linux:

curl -A "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; SunOS i86pc; rv:52.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/52.0" \
'https://www.google.nl/search?q=red+apple&tbm=isch' 2>/dev/null | \ 
tail -1 | sed -e 's/,"ow":/*/g' -e 's/,"ou":/*Image:/g' | \ 
tr '*' '\n' | grep "^Image" | sed -e 's/^Image:"//' -e 's/"$//'
