Shell script to download Bing’s daily image as a wallpaper for Mac

I previously wrote about downloading Bing’s daily image and set it as your wallpaper using PowerShell for Windows. Or, Python for Mac. This time around, I will show you how to do a Shell script to achieve the same thing. Also, set the downloaded image as wallpaper immediately.

I have already made the following script an app using Mac Automator. It basically creates a new directory for you, if one does not exist, under your “Pictures” directory called “Bing Wallpaper” and download Bing’s daily image there as “wallpaper.jpg”. Then, it will set the downloaded image as your wallpaper – Also works on multi-monitor.

You can save the app in your Applications folder or anywhere you want.

Or, if you want to edit the script, download the source below and make your own app.
