#5253 closed Enhancement (wontfix)

Open torrent from clipboard button

Description

I feel transmission-daemon should have a button in the toolbar to open a torrent from the clipboard.

In other words, a function that would replace the act of hitting, Open Torrent > V > Upload, to simply Open From Clipboard.

Not a huge enhancement but should be easy to implement and would save a few clicks every time you add a torrent through the daemon.

Hi KMB, thanks for suggesting this and I would appreciate if you could help me to understand your request. transmission-daemon doesn't have any GUI at all, so I don't know which toolbar you're referring to.

Oh sorry, I suppose this is more of an enhancement for the transmission web interface I use to access it remotely: http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8193/8418092224_3d90b09843_z.jpg Should I change the component tag on the ticket?

  • Component changed from Daemon to Web Client

The web client already is a bit jam packed with buttons. I feel that putting a button for this non-critical feature isn't worth the space tradeoff.

Well if you dont want use up toolbar space, you could detect a url that is dragged onto the torrent_container div.

The user would simply drag the download link for a .torrent file onto the div and from there it would be added to the list.

That would work, because that is what I implemented in Shift ( https://forum.transmissionbt.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=12555 ). The entire window is a droppable area for links, torrents and text files containing links.
