hellanzb

hellanzb

hellanzb is a Python application that retrieves NZB files and fully processes them.

The goal of this software is to make getting files from Usenet as hands-free as possible. Once fully installed, all that is required is to move an NZB file to the queue directory. The rest; fetching, par-checking, un-raring, etc. is taken care of by this software.

Whilst hellanzb is no longer being maintained, it is included in popular Linux distributions.
