First, you'll need to install Mechanize as a Flexget dependency in order to use the Form Login plugin. For me this was as easy as navigating to my FlexGet directory and running easy_install mechanize. However, I'm new to Linux and installed it on a seedbox where most the hard work was already done for me. I'm sure Ian could assist with that further if you have trouble.
This is a sample config, with personal and tracker info removed.
Code: Select all
#This is the URL to your tracker's login page #
# Your Username and Password #
# The URL to your tracker's browse page. If you're able to set up default browse categories, I'd do so. #
# Here, you want to specify the field that has the actual torrent name to filter by. The format is <a href="url" title="title">link</a> #
# This will be the most complicated part. Usually when you follow through links on the browse page your taken to the torrent details. We want to redirect that to the actual download link using the urlrewrite plugin. #
The most difficult thing in this example will be the URL Rewrite. I know it took me a few goes before I fully understood it. If you're having trouble, the folks over at FlexGet are probably better equipped to help you than I am.
Also a word of warning. If your tracker doesn't have an RSS feed or IRC announce, this may be by design as they don't like everyone snatching torrents minutes after release. Make sure it isn't explicitly against the rules and even so, use at your own risk.
