Description

You should be able to select files etc. from the cli and view more information as you can do with the gtk client. Same goes for transmission-remote See ctorrent http://www.rahul.net/dholmes/ctorrent/ for an example.

Why?

Replying to charles:

Why?

There is no way to interact with it. It is not an interface as such. You can only start a torrent and then wait. It prints status information but that's about it. As such you have to use the GTK client or the web client. Both of which are useless if all you have is an ssh session. At the very least you should be able to select which files you download.

transmission-daemon can be properly controlled using transmission-remote, even if you only have an SSH session. Granted, it doesn't have all the features of the GUI clients yet, but that's only a matter of time.

This ticket as stated is not going to be satisfied. It's simply not going to happen that the cli application is going to have all the features of the gui versions.

At the very least you should be able to select which files you download.

You can do this in transmission-remote.

Actually you can only select the torrents you want to download. Not the individual files within them, Same with transmissioncli

$ transmission-remote --help
[...]
 -g   --get                  <files>              Mark files for download
 -G   --no-get               <files>              Mark files for not downloading

Example:

$ transmission-remote -t 1 -f

will list all the files that are within Torrent #1. Each file has an index number. Now:

$ transmission-daemon -t 1 -G 1,3,7,8,12

will tell Transmission to not download the files #1,​3,​7,​8 and 12.

You can also change file priorities the same way.
