Automatically remove torrents according to your strategies.
This script can help you to remove your torrents. Now you don’t need to worry about your disk space - according to your strategies, for each category and tracker, the script will check each torrent if it satisfies the remove condition; If so, delete it automatically.
This smart script supports qBittorrent/Transmission/μTorrent. If you like, star it :sparkles: :)
- Python 3
That’s all. It’s a simple but smart script.
Download the codes
git clone https://github.com/jerrymakesjelly/autoremove-torrents.git pip3 install requests pyyaml cd autoremove-torrents
Write your configuration file
In order to satisfactory your needs, you have to learn how to write a configuration file. 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 seeding_time: 1209600 ratio: 1 delete_data: true
The script will delete those torrents whose categories are IPT, seeding time is above 1209600 seconds or ratio is greater than 1. Visit Wiki 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 python3 and your script):
*/15 * * * * /usr/bin/python3 /home/jerrymakesjelly/autoremove-torrents/main.py --conf=/home/jerrymakesjelly/autoremove-torrents/config.yml
The conf= indicates the path to the configuration file.
Wed, 28 Mar 2018: (Correct document) The delete_data field shouldn’t be indented.

Depend on users’ feedback.
- Support Deluge and rtorrent in the future
- Add remove condition: Disk free space
- Add remove condition: Max/Min average UL/DL speed
- The file autoremove.py is too long to maintain, I should reconstruct it using OOP.
If you have any problem, please submit Issues.
