Hellanzb is a console based Usenet binary downloader written in Python. It can be run in daemon mode and several GUI or PHP frontends are available.
- Automatically downloads nzb files placed in a user-specified watch directory.
- Par1/2 verification and repair of damaged files.
- Unrars completed downloads.
- Deletes unneeded files after a download has been completed.
Hellanzb is available in the AUR package AUR.
Hellanzb can be run in two modes:
- From CLI
- As daemon
A configuration file named hellanzb.conf must be present in the users .config directory for hellanzb to function properly. A sample configuration file is available.
mkdir -p ~/.config cp /etc/hellanzb.conf.sample ~/.config/hellanzb.conf
When run in daemon mode, the /etc/conf.d/hellanzb file needs to be modified to configure the user that will be running hellanzb
