Interface and features inspired by Transmission Remote and Transmission Remote GUI.


You must first enable remote access in Transmission settings.

Web UI

Download Transmissionic-webui-[version].zip from the latest release page and unzip it.

Method 1

Set an environment variable named TRANSMISSION_WEB_HOME with the path of the extracted folder as value.


export TRANSMISSION_WEB_HOME=/path/to/transmissionic/folder

Method 2

Note: On older versions of Transmission, the public_html folder is named web

Copy the content of the extracted folder to the public_html folder of Transmission, whose location varies depending on your operating system:


C:\Program Files\Transmission\public_html





Don't forget to save your current public_html folder if you want to switch back.


Download the AppImage from the latest release page.

It's recommended to use AppImageLauncher to take advantage of the torrent file assosiation and magnet link handling.


Download the DMG from the latest release page.

When you try to install it, you will get an error. After getting the error, go to System Preferences > Security & Privacy and click on Open Anyway.


Download the IPA from the latest release page.

Use a tool like AltStore to sideload the app on your device.


Simply download the installer for the desired platform from the latest release page and install it.


Web UI

You don't need to specify the server details as they will be automatically detected from the URL of the Web UI.

Default settings

The settings are stored on the client side, but you can overwrite the default settings by creating a file named default.json in the root folder of the Web UI.

The file can contain the following key/value pairs:

Key Type Description Default
colorScheme string Possible values: light or dark System default
language string An ISO 639-1 language code, example: en-US System default
orderBy string Possible values: name, addedDate, sizeWhenDone, uploadRatio, uploadedEver, rateUpload, activityDate, queuePosition addedDate
reverse boolean Reversed ordering true
useBits boolean Display speed in bit/s true
expandMenu boolean Expand side menu on large screen true
searchByName boolean Search torrents by name true
searchByDirectory boolean Search torrents by download directory true
ipFlags boolean Display peer flag false
openMagnetLinks boolean Open magnet links with Transmissionic false
rememberSelectedPreset boolean Remember selected preset when adding torrents false
compactMode boolean Compact torrent list false
showTrackerList boolean Always show the list of trackers in the side menu false
refreshInterval number Refresh interval in seconds 5
timeout number Connection timeout in seconds 10
servers array Default servers []

Server object:

Key Type Description
name string Name to display
host string Hostname or IP address of Transmission RPC
path string Path of Transmission RPC
port number Port of Transmission RPC
https boolean Use HTTPS

Configuration file example:

      "name":"My server",

Magnet protocol

You can handle magnet links directly with the Web UI, but this feature is only available in secure contexts (HTTPS) or from localhost.

To use the Web UI in HTTPS, you must set up a reverse proxy: [GUIDE] Transmission web in SSL (https) - using nginx as a reverse proxy

List of supported browsers: Browser compatibility


When using the Web UI, you can import magnet and torrent links using a bookmarklet. To set up the bookmarklet, open the Web UI settings and simply drag and drop the corresponding button into your bookmarks bar.

You can use the text selection to highlight a magnet link or a hash before cliking on the bookmarklet, otherwise the script will look for a clickable magnet or torrent link in the page.

For mobile users:

  1. Long-press the bookmarklet button and select "Copy link address".
  2. Add the current page to your favorites and edit the bookmark.
  3. Replace the address with the one you previously copied and change the name to "Download with Transmissionic".
  4. Go on a torrent page.
  5. Tap on the address bar, search for "Download with Transmissionic" and select the bookmark. (Screenshot)


Magnet protocol

To handle magnet links in Windows, you need to set Transmissionic as the default program.

To do so, go to "Choose default apps by protocol" in the Windows settings, scroll down to "MAGNET" then select Transmissionic.

Path mapping

You can configure path mapping on computer, this allow you to match remote paths with local paths to open the file explorer. This parameter works exactly the same way as Transmission Remote GUI.


/mnt/ssd = \\\ssd

/mnt/ssd = Remote path on the server where Transmission daemon is running.

\\\ssd = Local path to access the shared folder.

In this case, the remote server IP is, and the folder /mnt/ssd must be shared on the network as ssd.

You must have Node.js installed, then you can clone this repo and install dependencies by running this in the root folder of the project:

npm install

If you want to build the APK, you must install Android Studio or JDK.

If you want to build the IPA, you must install Xcode.

Web UI

Simply run the following command:

npm run build:webui

This will build the Web UI inside the dist folder.


First, synchronize Electron content by running this in the root folder of the project:

npm run sync:electron

Then place your terminal in the electron folder and run this:

npm install


npm run electron:build-windows


npm run electron:build-linux


npm run electron:build-mac

The installer will be located in the electron/dist folder.


Start by running this in the root folder of the project:

npm run sync:android

With Android Studio

Open Android Studio by running:

npx cap open android

Once Android Studio has loaded the project, build the app from Build > Make Project

Without Android Studio

Place your terminal in the android folder and run this:

./gradlew build

The APK will be located in the android/app/build/outputs/apk folder.


Start by running this in the root folder of the project:

npm run sync:ios

Then open Xcode by running:

npx cap open ios


You can start a local dev server using Ionic, but you need to disable same origin policy in your browser to connect to Transmission RPC from a different host. For example, run a new instance of chrome with these flags : --disable-web-security --disable-gpu --user-data-dir=~/chromeTemp

Then start the dev server by running this in the root folder of the project:

npm run serve

If you want to contribute and pull your changes to this project, please work on the dev branch as it contains all the latest changes.
