FlexGet

https://github.com/Flexget/Flexget/workflows/Main%20Workflow/badge.svg?branch=develop&event=schedule https://api.codacy.com/project/badge/Grade/86bb847efe984c12948bdeccabcbccad https://api.codacy.com/project/badge/Coverage/86bb847efe984c12948bdeccabcbccad

FlexGet is a multipurpose automation tool for content like torrents, nzbs, podcasts, comics, series, movies, etc. It can use different kinds of sources like RSS-feeds, html pages, csv files, search engines and there are even plugins for sites that do not provide any kind of useful feeds.

Example

Flexget uses a YAML based configuration file. The following example will look in the RSS feed in the link, will match any item that match the series names and download it:

tasks:
  tv_task:
    rss: http://example.com/torrents.xml
    series:
    - some series
    - another series
    download: /tvshows

There are numerous plugins that allow utilizing FlexGet in interesting ways and more are being added continuously.

FlexGet is extremely useful in conjunction with applications which have watch directory support or provide interface for external utilities like FlexGet. To get a sense of the many things that can be done with FlexGet you can take a look in our cookbook.

How to use GIT checkout

Check that you have Python 3.6 or newer available with command python -V.

In some environments newer python might be available under another name like 'python3.6' or 'python3' in which case you need to use that one instead of plain 'python'.

To start using FlexGet from this directory:

python3 -m venv .

This will initialize python virtualenv. This doesn't need to be directly in your checkout directory, but these instructions assume that's where it is.

On some linux distributions (eg. debian, ubuntu) venv module is not included with python and this fails. Please install python3-virtualenv package and retry (or use the separate virtualenv python package).

Upgrading pip to latest version is highly advisable and can de done with:

bin/pip install --upgrade pip

Next we need to install dependencies and FlexGet itself, this can be done simply:

bin/pip install -e .

This does an editable (-e) development install of the current directory (.).

After that FlexGet is usable via <checkout directory>/bin/flexget. Verify installation by running:

bin/flexget -V

You may place the config file in your checkout directory, or in ~/.flexget (Unix, Mac OS X) or C:\Documents and Setting\<username>\flexget (Windows).

If you don't want to use virtualenv there's flexget_vanilla.py file which can be used to run FlexGet without virtualenv, note that you will need to install all required dependencies yourself.
