Deluge badly needs an integrated RSS plugin.

Do you not think leaving RSS to a dedicated app like FlexGet a better solution, so instead concentrate on improving the way that it communicates with Deluge?

One noticeable place needing work is the Windows FlexGet + Deluge installation, that is currently a pita.

I have seen comments that by having FlexGet it makes it easier to transition between torrent clients.

Improving the situation on windows would probably involve creating an installer which installs all the deps separately rather than bundled, which is probably worthwhile doing in its own right.

However I still think an integrated RSS plugin is needed. Sure power users can install FlexGet if they prefer but it's a bit unfair to make the average user install an extra app just to do some simple RSS downloading.

I really hope that you include functionality similar to uTorrent and not just a simple downloader (i.e. if it's on the rss feed, download it)

Apparently someone in the community is already writing a RSS plugin so I may not need to write one myself. Either way I'm sure it will have filtering.

  • Priority changed from major to minor

I think the work that 'bro' has put into Plugins/YaRSS2 covers this nicely. The only part that is missing, as per usual, is the webui plugin page.
