editor's review

When working with linux it becomes very inadvertent that you have to read the various feeds. The Tvbutler 0.1 Beta 1 helped me in reading the feeds from the sites and then downloads the torrents of very new portions. Also you can get the preferred quality when you use this software for reading the feeds. You would rather be smart enough that you know to fallback the non ??“ HD version if you can get them.

Hope everyone using linux would now know what is crontab or the launchd. This software is designed especially to work on these mentioned options. I was able to download all the feeds without the need for providing any parameters which might be lengthy process for some people. This will become the best option for those who want to run the feeds within no time and complete the job and return home early to spend time in personal life.

Well maintained log of activities will give insight into how the database has been working in addition to this you should create a configuration when you use it for first time. Of course you have many things to do with this but hope you better do some more research as to how to use while I can surely say that it worked well for me.

linux default icontvbutler Publisher's description

tvbutler reads RSS feeds from http://tvtorrents.com and downloads torrents of new episodes for you in your preferred quality

tvbutler reads RSS feeds from http://tvtorrents.com and downloads torrents of new episodes for you in your preferred quality (but is smart enough to fallback to non-HD versions, if available).

tvbutler is designed to work as a crontab or launchd entry: called without any parameters it will download all given feeds, try to identify shows and then figure out which episodes are available in which quality.

It then downloads the torrent files into the given target directory (which typically will be 'watched' by a torrent client).

tvbutler keeps a log of its activities in ~/.tvbutler/log and a (sqlite) database of known shows and episodes in ~/.tvbutler/database.db

The configuration lives in ~/.tvbutler/config. If it doesn't exist, tvbutler will create a sample configuration when it's run for the first time. It has some comments and should thus be pretty self-explanatory:

# one of sd, 720p, 1080p

# one per line, indented
feeds =

Since tvbutler is aimed at downloading new episodes of currently running shows as they are released, it excludes by default all torrents it recognizes as archives of entire seasons. It does so by excluding all torrents whose description matches a regular expression. If you have a global_exclude_regex entry in the [main] section of your configuration it will be applied, if it's missing, nothing will be filtered. The default looks like so:



Just install easy_install like so:

easy_install tvbutler

Alternatively, download the archive, expand it and run:

python setup.py install

This will install the command line executable tvbutler mentioned above.

* archive or delete files older than n days (perhaps base decision on tag)
* remove torrents from transmission that have reached their seeding limit
