Torrent downloading progress on Telegram

Project description


Torrent downloading progress on Telegram



  • Support for two most popular torrent clients Transmission and rTorrent
  • Multithreading, each downloading item is handled separately
  • Running post download script in separate process
  • Self-adjustment of Telegram bot limits based on number of torrents tracked
  • Easy configuration
  • Uploading new torrent - just send torrent file to chat


You need Python 3 to run this program.

$ pip install --user tdpt

Create configuration file

$ cp tdpt.ini.template tdpt.ini

Edit it and save.


Transmission already supports running script upon finishing download

Yes, that is true. However the script that transmission will run will be executed in the same thread. That means any long running process would freeze it for that amount of time which is highly undesirable.

tdpt picks up new items so slow

Currently it fetches new items every 20 seconds, because this operation can be quite expensive. I might add option to specify this interval based on your preferences.

I am downloading 20 items and tdpt updates them very rarely

Telegram puts limit of how often bot can make request to one channel. Currently the limit is 20 updates per minute. tdpt makes time adjustment based on number of torrents that it tracks to avoid hitting limits.
