Watch directories for transmission

Project description

Watch directories to trigger transmission downloads.

Trawa is a small python script to monitor watch directories, each having a specific configuration. Any matching file dropped in these directories is sent to a transmission instance using rpcxml.

You can define for each directory to watch, a file mask and a set of rpc parameters to send to transmission. The following example will watch 2 directories and set a specific download_dir for each of the two categories:

dirs:
    - watch_path:   /home/lke/torrents/linux/images
      file_mask:    '*.torrent'
      descrip:      Linux images
      rpc_params:
        download_dir:   /downloads/linux_images

    - watch_path:   /home/lke/torrents/audio/samples
      file_mask:    '*.torrent'
      descrip:      Audio samples
      rpc_params:
        download_dir:   /mnt/ext4/audio/samples

Only newly created torrent files are watched. Torrent files are never removed.

Note: For the complete list of rpc parameters, see Transmission RPC proto spec <https://github.com/transmission/transmission/wiki/RPC-Protocol-Specification>.
