I use tribler via a docker container on a server usable only with terminal.
I code a simple bash script to interact with Tribler.
I can start a download via a magnet link, stop, delete a download.
So I’ve got the bare minimum.
I see that the API allows me to perform a search (https://tribler.readthedocs.io/en/latest/restapi/search.html). But how can I download one of the items returned by the search?
“The URI of the torrent file that should be downloaded. This URI can either represent a file location, a magnet link or a HTTP(S) url” (https://tribler.readthedocs.io/en/latest/restapi/downloads.html#put–downloads). What do you mean by “file location”? What parameter returned by the search can be sent to Tribler to start a download?
Another thing, the URL “/torrentinfo” seems to be able to return some interesting information. In particular, I need to retrieve the file(s) / folder(s) names of a torrent already active on Tribler. But I can’t get it to work, either for a download in progress or via a magnet link. I’ve tried passing the URL parameters “/torrentinfo?torrent=”, “/torrentinfo?uri=” and then a magnet link or url encoded magnet link without success.
Oh, and adding parameter to URL “/downloads?get_files=true” does not seem to work (https://tribler.readthedocs.io/en/latest/restapi/downloads.html#get–downloads).
Finally, is it possible to retrieve information from a single download without having to parse all the information from all the downloads managed by Tribler ("'GET /downloads") ?
Thanks in advance
Have a good day
