Author of this repository is not responsible for any possible illegal or malicious usage of any files provided in this repository by anyone. The repository is provided as an act of good will and does not intend to encourage users to participate in any illegal activities.
Unix-based OS (Linux tested)
Bash shell 4.0 or above
The following executables must be found on your system:
Recommended: Transmission GTK or Transmission Qt
Just grab the script. On your shell view, run
Then add your blocklists as instructed below.
On your bash shell, run
bash transmission_blocklists.sh -y
where -y parameter passes all Yes/No questions with auto-yes answer (except for internet connection test)
A: The provided script has array BLOCKLISTS where your blocklists should be placed in. Adding new lists is very simple. The list syntax is as follows
[list_1-friendly-name]="list_1_URL" [list_2-friendly-name]="list_2_URL" ...
'list_X-friendly-name' is human-readable name you give to the blocklist. This is for easier management for massive amount of blocklists you may have.
'list_X_URL' is the corresponding URL address of your blocklist, points to zip or gz archive.
Take a look into the script for more examples.
A: The script supports only zip and gz archive formats.
Required Transmission .bin blocklist files are generated by 'transmission-cli' executable.
A: Yes, the script deletes blocklists you've removed from BLOCKLISTS array. However, I recommend you to close your Transmission client and then running the script (after blocklist deletion).
A: The script finds out that the blocklist is not available anymore, warns you about it and asks you whether to continue downloading other blocklists.
UPDATELIMIT_DAYS = Older blocklist files than this should be updated
WGET_TIMEOUT = Time out after which downloading a blocklist will be ignored
TRANSMISSION_BLOCKLISTDIR = Default blocklist directory path of Transmission client program
TEST_PROVIDER = The script checks your internet connection by pinging this URL address
