python-qBittorrent

Documentation Status

Python wrapper for qBittorrent Web API (for versions above v3.1.x).

For qBittorrent clients with earlier versions, use mookfist's python-qbittorrent.

This wrapper is based on the methods described in qBittorrent's Official Web API Documentation

Some methods are only supported in qBittorent's latest version (v3.3.1 when writing).

It'll be best if you upgrade your client to a latest version.

Installation

The best way is to install a stable release from PyPI:

$ pip install python-qbittorrent

You can also stay on the bleeding edge of the package:

$ git clone https://github.com/v1k45/python-qBittorrent.git
$ cd python-qBittorrent
$ python setup.py install

Prerequisite

qBittorent webUI must be enabled before using this API client. How to enable the qBittorrent Web UI

Quick usage guide

from qbittorrent import Client

qb = Client('http://127.0.0.1:8080/')

qb.login('admin', 'your-secret-password')
# not required when 'Bypass from localhost' setting is active.
# defaults to admin:admin.
# to use defaults, just do qb.login()

torrents = qb.torrents()

for torrent in torrents:
    print torrent['name']

    # downloading and are labeled as ``my category``.
    
    qb.torrents(filter='paused', sort='ratio')
