Transmission App


Transmission is a fast, easy and free BitTorrent client.


By default, this app is configured to, at the end of a download, automatically hard-link the downloaded files from /app/data/files/Downloading/ to /app/data/files/Downloaded/. This allows potential post-processing by other apps of the file in Downloaded, without interfering with seeding from the file in Downloading.

The paths above can be changed.

Custom config

Custom configuration can be edited in /app/data/transmission-config/modifiable.settings.json using the File Manager. Be sure to restart the app after making changes.

See transmission docs for a full list of configurable options.

Do not edit settings.json

There is a file named settings.json. This gets overwritten on startup. Instead, place settings only in modifiable.settings.json.
