#2252 closed bug (WontFix)

Handle magnet:// links

Reported by: Mathieu Rochette Owned by: Damien Churchill
Priority: minor Milestone: Future
Component: Web UI Version: other (please specify)
Keywords: Cc:


I'm not talking about supporting magnet, I know it's already possible. What I would like is for Deluge to register[1][2] itself as an handler for magnet:// links. That way clicking a magnet:// link would automatically open[3] deluge webui, open the 'Add torrents' popup if it's not already opened and add the magnet torrent (as if clicking on '+Url', pasting the magnet link and clicking 'ok'). The user would just have to click 'Add' to validate the action.

[1] [2] [3] or switch to it if already open, I guess the browser is the one making decision here

This is not possible because the WebUI requires authenticated POST. There are already plugins for both Chrome and Firefox that will do this though.
