My setup unpacks all compressed/archived files. I’m not entirely sure where should the files be extracted to for Sonarr to successfully detect them.
- Deluge (a torrent client) running on a remote server;
- files are copied from remote server to a temporary directory not seen by Sonarr;
- if archives are detected, they are extracted and archives themselves are removed;
- final result is moved to Sonarr-monitored directory.
Let’s assume remote’s /deluge-complete directory is remote-path-mapped to /completed locally.
Now two torrents finish downloading, are copied to our local machine in a temporary dir, and are laid out as follows:
$ tree /completed-tmp /completed-tmp/ ├── uncompressed-torrent │ └── file1.rar └── compressed-torrent.rar
Note compressed-torrent.rar didn’t come in its own directory - it’s just a single file.
Now our extraction logic runs and moves files-directories to /completed so Sonarr can pick them up.
What would be an appropriate post-extraction directory view for Sonarr to find the episode files?
Would this work for a final view:
$ tree /completed /completed/ ├── uncompressed-torrent │ └── extracted │ └── episode01.mkv └── compressed-torrent.rar └── episode02.mkv
Note we created a directory /completed/compressed-torrent.rar/ ourselves; also all archives were removed by our logic.
For the record, I’m using Sonarr v3, running in Docker.
