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.


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 listed series names and download it:

    - 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.
