Hey Lemmy -

I was downloading the KDE Neon edition ISOs yesterday night and noticed there weren’t many seeders for the nightly edition. It gave me the idea to write a program that automatically grabs the .torrent file for lots of FOSS projects and throws them on my seedbox every night, but before I reinevent the wheel, does something like this exist?

Qbittorrent has a Python API so the code isn’t complicated, but with a bit of Google-foo I wasn’t able to find something like this already, which kind of blows my mind tbh. Does Lemmy know?

I think some torrent clients allow subscribing to rss feeds, and downloading/seeding any torrents that get added. So that could be a solution if such an rss feed is available.

I’m not aware of any project like that, but it’s a wonderful idea!
