Multi-Edit trackers

Reported by: dus Owned by: Cas
Priority: major Milestone: 2.x
Component: Web UI Version: 1.3.3
Keywords: tracker, edit Cc: bobodod@…, mvseqt2twu@…


Either on the GTK or the WEB ui, you cant change at more then one torrent at time, his tracker list. (Yes, also selecting more then 1).

This sucks 'cause for private trackers you could have to change your passkey (and so the tracker list), for every torrent on the client, but you can't do it one by one.

Anyway, I think it's a bug to change only one torrent if you select more then one.

(By the way, the "move storage" works selecting more than one).

git format-patch of mult-edit tracker hack

comment:3 Changed 11 years ago by bluephoenix47

I recently wanted to edit a set of (280) torrents to use https instead of http, and to hell with doing that manually.

So I create this hack. I created and tested it on a local 1.3.5 copy, and ported it to the head of the git master branch, so strictly speaking, it's untested.

It has the same semantics as multi-torrent move storage--the initial data comes from the first selected torrent, and the edited data applies to all the selected torrents.

I've made some changes based on your initial work so that only the trackers that are shared among the selected torrents will be shown. Also added a warning that it will clobber existing trackers when saving.;2047;EditMultipleTorrentTrackers

This could be added to 1.3-stable for 1.3.6 release.

comment:6 Changed 11 years ago by gazpachoking

If we are going to allow multi-edit trackers, I'd say just show all the trackers from all the torrents rather than filtering down to only the common ones. Or if we want to do only shared trackers, I think this is nicer:

shared_trackers = set.intersection(*(set(status[torrent_id]['trackers']) for torrent_id in status))

Hmm, seems that's only available since python 2.6, do we support 2.5 still?

EDIT: A python 2.5 possibility

shared_trackers = reduce(lambda x, y: x & y, (set(status[torrent_id]['trackers']) for torrent_id in status))

Maybe the solution here is not to edit trackers on multiple torrents but to offer a search and replace option such as in the script that I created for a user:

  • Owner changed from damoxc to Cas
  • Status changed from new to assigned

comment:10 Changed 10 years ago by bluephoenix47

Search and replace sounds much more robust and less error prone.

  • Type changed from bug to feature-request

comment:12 Changed 7 years ago by aberaud

That's an important feature when managing many torrents.

If multiple torrents are selected, editing all of them is the expected behavior.

Please merge this. I rebased this patch and it works.

  • Milestone changed from 2.0.x to 2.x

Milestone renamed

comment:14 Changed 7 years ago by lalomartins

@aberaud can you share a git branch and/or patch? It would both be useful for other users, and increase the chance the devs actually merge it.

Alternatively, I suppose this could be done as a plugin? Anyone has plugin experience?

comment:16 Changed 2 years ago by DjLegolas

Do we still want this change in the latest patch, i.e. take the trackers only from the first torrent selected? Or something else?

pull request for webui

but yes, 'search and replace' is better way than this pull request, IF it's implemented in the UI (gtk/web)
