Automatically download series.

Project Description

seriesnatch - manage your serie needs by ease

* SQLAlchemy
* lxml
* requests
* transmissionrpc (also transmission-daemon, for torrent downloading)

Manage all your tv-serie needs with this neat little tool, there are 2 scripts included
seriesnatch & seriesnatch-admin. With seriesnatch-admin you can easily manage the database,
you can create an initial database with all records from or clear it to start out

With seriesnatch, there are few options right now, the first option is --dev-mode which will
enable logging to stdout instead of just purely using syslog. The other option available is
--watchlist-update which will scrape for any new releases. If any new release(s) are
found it will automatically be downloaded from the site by transmission-daemon.

To take full advantage of this, you should use a cron-daemon to do a --watchlist-update
every so often so it is automated. There are also currently one notifier available, the
gmail notifier if configured will email any recipients with a list of updates available
upon an update so you can easily know when a new serie has been downloaded for you.

The configuration is written using YAML and should be placed in $HOME/.seriesnatch with a
name of config.yml.

Example config.yml
port: 9091
username: youruser
password: yourpassword


password: your_password_in_plain_text

filename: my_databse.db

Default values exist for transmission(username=transmission, password=transmission, port=9091), database(filename=default.db).
So unspecified values will be filled in, you are however expected to have a watchlist if there is any shows you are
interested in having watched for you. Notifications are totally optional, but may come in handy if run by a daemon.

The database files are stored in $HOME/.seriesnatch, so for that just specfiy a filename.
