This project is no longer being actively maintained. It still works fine but no new features will ever be appearing. Check out my GoPostStuff project for a new and much scarier version of the idea.
newsmangler is a basic client for posting binaries to Usenet. The only notable feature is multiple connection support to efficiently utilize modern bandwidth.
- Download the source:
git clone git://github.com/madcowfred/newsmangler.git(or download a .zip I guess).
- Copy sample.conf to ~/.newsmangler.conf, edit the options as appropriate.
cp sample.conf ~/.newsmangler.conf
- Download and install the yenc module for greatly improved yEnc encoding speed.
Make a directory containing the files you wish to post, the _directory name_ will be used as the post subject. For example, with a directory structure such as:
- test post please ignore/
And the command line:
python mangler.py "test post please ignore"
- The files will post as:
test post please ignore [1/3] - "test.nfo" yEnc (1/1)
test post please ignore [2/3] - "test.part1.rar" yEnc (01/27)
test post please ignore [3/3] - "test.part2.rar" yEnc (01/27)
python mangler.py --help for other options.
