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.

Also, it seeds torrents up to a ratio of 2, then automatically remove them, and removes the corresponding files from 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.
