CLI that trigger the download of the most seeded torrent from the piratebay for a given search, using transmission
"Do you want to save time? Because that's how you save time."
tbb-transmission is a minimalist CLI that download the most seeded torrent on the piratebay for a given search.
npm install -g tbb-transmission
You need the transmission client installed and running on your machine.
For this to work, you need to enable remote access on transmission. See Preferences>Remote Control. Keep everything as default but please only allow access from localhost, just in case.
tbb-transmission the torrent name
tbb-transmission the torrent name --download (or -d)
tbb-transmission the torrent name --serie -d
if the -d is omitted, this will simply show the names of each matching torrents. It might be a very good idea, if you add the -d option, to limit in Transmission the number of parallel downloads. See Preferences>Transfer.
You can also specify a starting point. For more information, type:
Every parameter can be configured directly, like the way you access transmission or even the site you use to find torrent(in case the pirate bay do not suits your needs):
the configuration will be saved in you home directory under .tbb-transmission.json, and can be edit manually.
I do not encourage nor caution any kind of use you will have of this library. Please read the MIT LICENSE for more informations.
Pirating is bad, M'kay?
