Magento download module from Magento Connect

I’ve often been in situation where I needed to get hold of the source code of a module on Magento Connect, their is an easy way of getting hold of it and it goes in the format of the below:

http://connect20.magentocommerce.com/community/{PACKAGE NAME}/{VERSION}/{PACKAGE NAME}-{VERSION}.tgz

An example of this would be:

Magento connect link: http://connect20.magentocommerce.com/community/Mage_GoogleTrustedStore

You can find the version¬†information in the the ‘Release Notes’ tab.

Version number: 1.0.14

Full URL:

Magento connect link: http://connect20.magentocommerce.com/community/Mage_GoogleTrustedStore/1.0.14/Mage_GoogleTrustedStore-1.0.14.tgz

You should be able to apply this theory to any module and any version of a module that is on Magento Connect
