ranked

By default the api will return only ranked torrents ( internal ) , scene releases + -rarbg releases + -rartv releases.

If you want other groups included in the results use the ranked parameter with a value of 0 to get them included.

Test

Clone this project, and install the dependencies npm i, npm run build and run npm run test to see the test result.

Note that sometimes the test will fail because of the network problem. Currently all the tests timeout is 60000ms, if your network is poor, you may encounter test timeout error.

Limitation

Due to the rarbg api's limitation, you may encounter error like:

{
  "error": "Too many requests per second. Maximum requests allowed are 1req/2sec Please try again later!",
  "error_code": 5
}

The api is limit to 1req/2sec, so you should control the frequency.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
