TurnKey Linux Virtual Appliance Library

Home NAS

I would like to use turnkey linux to create a home/small business NAS.  I will need file sharing, bittorrent, mediasharing, and other functions for which you have appliances already, but I would also require a gpodder server client.  I would love to get a system working that would alow a web interface for gpodder functions.  I know gpodder has the gpodder.net service, but we don't have are computers on most of the time and would like to have all our subscribed podcasts downloaded onto a NAS.

probably your best starting point would be Torrent file server appliance and then add your own dlna server ( I am working on adding serviio-0.5.2 to a tklpatch ) but it can be manually installed and then adding your gpodder server client .

+1 for what Alex said :)

A quick google suggests that gPodder can be run headlessly although I couldn't find much info on exactly how you would go about that. You'd probably have to have a play with it and see how you go.

I strongly suggest that you closely document all that you do so if something screws up you can rinse and repeat (omiting/changing the step that screwed everything). It will also make it easy to share your findings with the community. I think there is a market for a TKL all-in-one NAS type product, and your investigations may be a basis for that. Or at least provide some guidance and feedback in what works for you.

gPodder headless mode

Since a few releases back, gPodder ships with the "gpo" command-line utility. This can be used to add new podcasts, update the feeds and then download new episodes. Another alternative would be to use bashpodder with the bpsync utility that's included in the mygpoclient library (here, mygpoclient's "bpsync" utility will make sure that the bashpodder subscription list always resembles the list that you have on gpodder.net, effectively enabling you to edit your bashpodder subscription list via gpodder.net).

Love the bpsync utility

Thanks for all your help.  I can hardly wait to try it.  I'll let you know when I get it up and running.  It's not exactly a GUI, but hopefully that will come.
