await TorrentSearchApi.downloadTorrent(torrent, filnamePath);

Load custom providers

You can code and add your custom providers (see provider definition format in existing providers) Don't forget to enable your provider if you intend to use it.

// load multipe providers
// from a TorrentProvider custom class definition or instance
const MyCustomProvider = require('./MyCustomProvider');

// from a provider object definition
TorrentSearchApi.loadProvider( {/* provider object definition */});

// from an absolute path to class definition or json object definition
const path = require('path');
const providerFullPath = path.join(__dirname, './lib/providers/MyCustomProvider');

// load multipe providers within a directory
// only absolute path are allowed
// it loads every *.json and *.js file
const path = require('path');
const providerDirFullPath = path.join(__dirname, './lib/providers/');

// load multipe providers
const MyCustomProvider = require('./MyCustomProvider');
TorrentSearchApi.loadProviders(MyCustomProvider, {/* provider object definition */}, ...);

Remove provider

// Remove provider

Create TorrentSearchApi instance

If you want to create an instance of the api without loading all the default providers and only load the ones that you want

// create instance
const createApi = require('torrent-search-api/createApi');
const TorrentSearchApi = createApi(/* same arguments as "loadProviders" method */)

Create a new provider

Check "test/createProvider.test.js" file if you want to create a new provider.

Running tests command

npm run test:watch

Override provider config

// Fully or partial override of the provider config
TorrentSearchApi.overrideConfig(providerName, newConfig);
