Install from pypi:

pip install qbittorrentui

In most cases, this should allow you to run the application simply with the qbittorrentui command. Alternatively, you can specify a specific python binary with ./venv/bin/python -m qbittorrentui or similar.


Connections can be pre-defined within a configuration file (modeled after default.ini). Specify the configuration file using --config_file. Each section in the file will be presented as a separate instance to connect to.

Sample configuration file section:

HOST = localhost
PORT = 8080
USERNAME = admin
PASSWORD = adminadmin

Only HOST, USERNAME, AND PASSWORD are required. DO_NOT_VERIFY_WEBUI_CERTIFICATE is necessary if the certificate is untrusted (e.g. self-signed).
