How easy is it to use?

Easy configuration was a high priority when designing the application. If you have ever used command line based application you should be more than qualified. There is also experimental Web-UI coming along (slowly).

FlexGet uses YAML for configuration. This may be confusing (for new users) at first but don't be scared, FlexGet is equipped with validator that tries to guide you if you make mistakes.

Configuration example:

This is a complete, fully functional, configuration file! You don't need anything more complex than this to get started.

  task name:
      - pioneer one
      - some series
    download: ~/torrents/series/

This example would download new episodes of pioneer one and some series to ~/series using series plugin.

You can find more configuration examples in The Cookbook.

For more information about how FlexGet works, check available plugins or detailed configuration.
