How can I customize the folder for listening for new .torrents, and moving a file to once downloaded?

Hi @mehdi, Wondering if this feature is included in the app / if these folders can be set to Cloudron volumes
@ethanxrosen of course it can!
Basically, you just have to edit
The list of stuff you can put there is https://github.com/transmission/transmission/wiki/Editing-Configuration-Files#options
In your case, it seems you need to add
watch-dir-enabled, plus you need to modify the exising
how do those .torrents get uploaded to the folder?
@robi Either manually, or using something like the "black-hole" method of torrent downloads in sickchill, in a shared volume
@mehdi Shared volume I can see.. if we had a nice file drop app.
Tell me more about the black hole one.
@robi On most apps that auto-download torrents (SickChill, CouchPotato, ...), there are 2 ways to download them:
- either you give the app an URL of a known torrent app (+ credentials if needed), and it connects to it by API
- or you instruct it to just write the .torrent files to a given folder when it wants to download something. The idea is to then watch said dir with a torrent app, to pick up the files and download them.
@mehdi Ah ok, familiar with that.. was hoping for some sort of submission system, upload web interface or RSS integration for remote curation.
