Is there anyone who has used both who can comment on the pros and cons?
I like transmission because it has a python lib that’s good enough and a built in webpage to easily manage it on a remote server by ssh port forwarding the command port.
I’ve tried other solutions in the past (maybe rtorrent, dunno?) but find transmission to just work for my use case.
My basic workflow is fetch an RSS feed whenever I remember, usually once a week or so, store the torrent info in a big json “database” file and download the torrents when it is convenient and/or I have access to fast internets. All with a simple script through the python transmission_rpc library. Well, and I manually upload the magnet links through the python repl these days so that part of the script is commented out.
