Welcome to pyrocore's documentation!
pyrocore is a collection of tools for the BitTorrent protocol
and especially the rTorrent client.
They enable you to filter rTorrent's item list for displaying or changing selected items,
also creating, inspecting and changing
.torrent files, and much more.
An optional daemon process named :command:`pyrotorque` can add flexible queue management for rTorrent, starting items added in bulk slowly over time according to customizable rules.
It can also watch a directory tree recursively for new metafiles using inotify.
.torrent files you drop anywhere into that watched tree are loaded instantaneously,
without any polling and no extra configuration for nested directories.
The PyroScope command line utilities (i.e. pyrocore) are not the same as `rTorrent-PS`_, and they work perfectly fine without it; the same is true the other way 'round. It's just that both projects unsurprisingly have synergies if used together, and some features do only work when both are present.
You absolutely must read the first three chapters :doc:`overview`, :doc:`installation`, and :doc:`setup`, and follow their instructions. Otherwise pyrocore utilities won't work at all or not properly, if you do not provide an adequate :file:`config.ini` file, and also modify the rTorrent one to provide some essential data and commands.
Once you got everything basically working, :doc:`usage` will show you all the common commands and use-cases. Further chapters then explain more complex use-cases and features that might not appeal or apply to you.
