Overdrive

Overdrive is a RSS frontend for the transmission bit torrent client. It has hooks to make downloading TV series much easier, and allows recipes with callbacks to make filtering show much easier.

Installation

Overdrive is a ruby gem that uses gemcutter. To install, simply do the following:

sudo gem install gemcutter
sudo gem tumble

then

sudo gem install overdrive

This should install the overdrive binary in your path.

Usage

To do anything useful, you need to setup a recipe. You can store the recipe (in Linux) at

/etc/overdrive.rb
/var/transmission/config/overdrive.rb
$HOME/.overdrive/overdrive.rb

and you can add paths via the -c argument:

overdrive -c /path/to/recipe.rb

A sample recipe might look like this:

add_feed "http://www.mytorrents.com/torrents.rss"
add_feed "http://www.myothertorrents.com/torrents.rss"

add_title "24"
add_title "30 Rock"
add_title "Alias"

filter do |item|
  parsed = parse_metadata(item)
  if parsed[:title] && parsed[:series] && parsed[:episode]
    title = parsed[:title].split(' ').map { |t| t[0..0].upcase + t[1..-1] }.join(' ')
  
    if titles.include?(title)
      target = "/videos/#{title}/Season #{parsed[:series].to_i.to_s}"
      download(item.url, :download_dir => target)
    end
  end
end

You can get a full list of command line arguments by running
