qBit Manage

GitHub release (latest by date) GitHub commits since latest release (by SemVer) Docker Image Version (latest semver) Github Workflow Status status Ghcr packages Docker Pulls Sponsor or Donate

This is a program used to manage your qBittorrent instance such as:

  • Tag torrents based on tracker URLs
  • Apply category based on save_path to uncategorized torrents in category's save_path
  • Change categories based on current category (cat_change)
  • Remove unregistered torrents (delete data & torrent if it is not being cross-seeded, otherwise it will just remove the torrent)
  • Automatically add cross-seed torrents in paused state. *Note: cross-seed now allows for torrent injections directly to qBit, making this feature rarely needed/used.*
  • Recheck paused torrents sorted by lowest size and resume if completed
  • Remove orphaned files from your root directory that are not referenced by qBittorrent
  • Tag any torrents that have no hard links outside the root folder (for multi-file torrents the largest file is used)
  • Apply share limits based on groups filtered by tags/categories and allows optional cleanup to delete these torrents and contents based on maximum ratio and/or time seeded. Additionally allows for a minimum seed time to ensure tracker rules are respected and minimum number of seeders to keep torrents alive.
  • RecycleBin function to move files into a RecycleBin folder instead of deleting the data directly when deleting a torrent
  • Built-in scheduler to run the script every x minutes. (Can use --run command to run without the scheduler)
  • Webhook notifications with Notifiarr and Apprise API integration
