[HOW TO] Get a .tar.gz / tgz from Magento connect

Well... once again I ran into an interesting issue.
(and I'll skip the cursing this time)

Sometimes you need the module package of an Magento installation, but what if it is just available via Magento connect?

Well... at first you gotta get the extension key from Magento connect


The url they give you is fake, so don't bother trying...

Instead, use the given package name to construct an URL after following scheme:


http://connect20.magentocommerce.com/community/[PACKAGE NAME]/[VERSION]/[FULL PACKAGE NAME].tgz


this would mean for our example:

http://connect20.magentocommerce.com/community/Mage_Ogone_Official/1.0.3/Mage_Ogone_Official-1.0.3.tgz

and... tadaaa, you got your .tgz archive!

Enjoy
