Allow a list of magnets to be provided as input to I2PSnark to make it more convenient to mass-add torrents, instead of adding them one at a time.

This is the kind of automation that the i2psnark-rpc plugin provides. Together with a command-line RPC client or script this should be possible. Isn't this too niche of a feature and too difficult to do well in a GUI?

There is a rtorrent web frontend written in php called rutorrent that can manage and auto-download from RSS feeds based on regular expressions, seems to work reasonably well. (clearnet link)

are you suggesting that we implement something similar in i2psnark? or that you can use the existing rtorrent UI to manage i2psnark via RPC? Still unsure what you're asking for, in i2psnark itself. an RSS feed reader is a much different thing from some UI where you could add a bunch of magnets.

I made 2 tickets for I2PSnark features, one was about an RSS feed monitor and the other was for adding multiple magnet links at once. I think I got the 2 tickets mixed up when I posted that last comment. Sorry about that.

I will look into automating torrent fetching/downloading on the command line, I recall you posted a comment on zzz.i2p regarding this. Feel free to close both of the feature requests. I'll post an update on the forum and on here when I have a working script.

Sonarr or ruTorrent (or similar) + i2psnark-rpc plugin is the best solution.
