#47 closed Defect (fixed)

Have transmission auto-save a copy of the torrent

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: joshe
Priority: Normal Milestone: Sometime
Component: Transmission Version: 0.5
Severity: Normal Keywords:


For *nix, copy the torrent to ~/.transmission/torrents/, on OS X copy the torrent to ~/Library/Application? Support/Transmission?/torrents/.

If the torrent is removed from Transmission, the associated torrent file can be deleted automatically by the app. That way users can simply click on a torrent in their browser and have Transmission copy it over to its torrent directory, and have it deleted automatically when they're done with it. No torrents cluttering the desktop, no problems restarting a torrent if you delete the torrent file but it's still in Transmission and not done, etc.

Note: Discussed on IRC, joshe was present.

I think I'll do this.

I think it would be nice not only to copy it, but maybe even have an option to move it. Either that or remove the original after it's copied it to the save directory.

The point of this was that you set your browser's .torrent handler to Transmission. When Transmission opens the torrent, it moves the .torrent file to it's torrent dir and takes care of it, and deletes it once the torrent is removed. In other words, the user never touches the .torrent file.

Yeah, I think that's how it should work. It's easy enough to set the browser to auto open the torrents with Transmission. So I agree that it should work in that manner.
