Manages the transportation of TV/Movie files to a mountable media share.

Project description

Manages the transportation of TV/Movie files to a mountable media share.

Contributers:

  • Steve Coward (stevesugarstack.io)

media-transporter is a project that arose out of laziness and boredom, mainly. There are plenty of similar or fully-featured alternatives like SickBeard and others, but I already had an existing workflow for:

  • Polling RSS feeds and downloading torrent files (Otomatic).
  • Automatic watching of a folder for torrents and auto-adding to a torrent client (Transmission).

The last piece involved the need to move completed downloads to my NAS. Enter media-transporter. Here’s how it works:

  • Create config.py in a directory of your choosing. Use config_example.py as a template. The main options are media_shares, download_path, and unrar_path. Adjust these to match the path to your media share, where you have finished downloads, and the absolute path to the unrar binary. The share_[tv|movie]_* config options point to the path on your media share where TV and Movies are stored.
  • media-transporter requires one command line argument. -c should be the absolute path to your config.py file.
  • When executed (preferably automatically after a torrent is completed (Transmission is built to support this, for example)), media-transporter determines if your configured media share is within an acceptable range for storage capacity (configured in config.py).
  • If it is, media-transporter checks your Downloads folder for media files and folders, and intelligently moves each of them to their appropriate destination on your media share.
  • Logs are written to the value of log file to record all actions taken during processing. Useful for debugging.

The idea is that media-transporter will be able to be used on multiple platforms, including Windows. At the moment, media-transporter has only been tested on OS X and Linux, but it should be feasible to support Windows very easily.

Requirements

  • Python 2.*
  • unrar via either apt-get/yum (Linux), homebrew (OS X), WinRAR (Windows)

Installation

$ pip install transporter
$ python setup.py install

Things to do

  • Code cleanup. Plenty of stuff to do. This wasn’t originally meant for public distribution.
  • Support and test script on Windows.
