The Execute plugin is only supported from deluge versions 1.3RC2 and up. It gives you the option to run your own scripts (e.a. Bash, Python or any other shell) triggered with different events in Deluge. At this moment only the events added (when a torrent is added to deluge) and complete (when a torrent has finished downloading) are supported. More events whill be added in the future.

The script will be executed with three variables.

1: The id of the torrent 2: The name of the torrent 3: With the added event the Download to: folder and with the complete event the - when configured - Move completed to: folder.
