FlexGet 1.2.90

A multipurpose automation tool for different content
FlexGet is a multipurpose automation tool for content like torrents, podcasts, nzbs, comics, etc.

FlexGet is able to handle different kinds of sources like RSS-feeds, html pages and even csv files. There are even some plugins for sites that do not provide any kind of useful feeds.

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.

FlexGet is platform independent, all platforms that have python* available are supported (Linux, Windows, OSX, even some routers and NAS boxes).

How easy is it to use?

Easy configuration was a high priority when designing the application. If you have ever used command line based application you should be more than qualified.

FlexGet uses YAML for configuration. This may be confusing (for new users) at first but don't be scared, FlexGet is equipped with validator that tries to guide you if you make mistakes.

Configuration example:

This is a complete, fully functional, configuration file! You don't need anything more complex than this to get started.

 feed name:
 rss: http://example.com/torrents.xml
 - series name
 - another series
 download: ~/torrents/series/

This example would download new episodes of series name and another series to ~/series using powerful series plugin.

You can find more configuration examples in The Cookbook.

For more information about how FlexGet works, check available plugins or detailed configuration.
