Automatically remove torrents according to your strategies.
This program can help you to remove your torrents. Now you don’t need to worry about your disk space - according to your strategies, the program will check each torrent if it satisfies the remove condition; If so, delete it automatically.
This program supports qBittorrent/Transmission/μTorrent. If you like, star it :star2: :)

Write your configuration file
In order to satisfactory your needs, you have to learn how to write a configuration file.
You can put the configuration file anywhere on your disk. The autoremove-torrents looks for config.yml in the Shell’s current working directory:
The grammar is quite easy, for example:
my_task: client: qbittorrent host: http://127.0.0.1 username: admin password: adminadmin strategies: my_strategy: categories: IPT remove: seeding_time > 1209600 or ratio > 1 delete_data: true
The program will delete those torrents whose categories are IPT, seeding time is above 1209600 seconds or ratio is greater than 1. Read the documents to learn more.
If you just want to see which torrents can be removed but don’t want to really remove them, use --view command line argument.
Setting up scheduled tasks
If you want to check whether there is any torrent can be removed every 15 minutes, the crontab can help you. Look at the example:
And then, add a line at the end of the file (please confirm the path of the autoremove-torrents and your program):
*/15 * * * * /usr/bin/autoremove-torrents --conf=/home/jerrymakesjelly/autoremove-torrents/config.yml --log=/home/jerrymakesjelly/autoremove-torrents/logs
The --conf indicates the path to the configuration file. The --log argument specifies the path to store the log files (Must be existed).
Sun, 19 June 2022: Version 1.5.4.
- Remove outgoing port status info. (#101) (#135)
We have confirmed a bug, which is, the outgoing port status checker will fail and report ‘portTested: http error 400: Bad Request’ when we are using Transmission and check the outgoing port status in IPv6 network.
Since there are no configurations relying on this status, we remove it.
- Change last_activity’s behaviour. (#93) (#98) (#109)
It won’t remove those torrents that have never been active anymore.
- These torrents that have never been active can be removed by the following configuration:
last_activity: never or last_activity: none for last_activity condition.
last_activity = never or last_activity = none for remove expression.
Add remove-slow-upload-seeds and remove-fast-upload-seeds in actions. (#127) Thanks to @vincent906!
Support equality (=) comparison in remove expression.
Add downloading time condition. (#88) Thanks to @dantebarba!
Fix a bug that Downloaded/Uploaded Size conditions and free_space/remote_free_space cannot handle decimals correctly. (#133) Thanks to @sfwn!
Fix a bug that last_activity condition doesn’t work in Deluge 2.0.3 and above. (#119)
Depend on users’ feedback. If you have any problem, please submit issues.
