Please Add support for TAR files

Post by xtrips »

Hello,
Sabnzbd already decompresses zip files when encountered. Could you add support for tar and maybe other kinds too?

See: https://github.com/sabnzbd/sabnzbd/issues/1967
Seems that tar files should stay packed.

I saw the discussion and. Am not happy with the conclusion.
You should at least propose that in the switches.
I am in the midst of downloading several tens of heavy posts, each over 40Gb, and all resumes in one TAR file.

Are you still on Unraid Server?
Have you considered a post-processing script?

Yes. Solely on Unraid.
I wouldn't know how to write or use a post processing script.

Well ... how you unpack a tar on your Unraid? I would guess:

Code: Select all

tar -xvf *tar

If so, that is the basis for a postprocessing script. I can make it for you ... if you know how to use a post-processing script ...

:-\ I unpack from a Windows PC using Winrar.
The best I can do is follow a step by step procedure explained in layman's words.

Question: If I am lucky and you do implement the feature how long before I see it reflected in the version I use > Unraid?

A post-processing script is easy: you put it on your Unraid, and it will work. No releases or delays.

I am all for it but
- who will write it and test it?
- where do I put it in Unraid folders?
- what fo I need to do for Sabnzbd to start using it when encountering .tar files?
- will it run so as to see its progress in Sabnzbd's web interface? or will it run outside of it giving me no feedback about success or failures?

I'll make and test the PP script

You have to put it on your Unraid Server. Read only the first paragraph of https://sabnzbd.org/wiki/scripts/post-p ... ng-scripts

Check question: can you access your Unraid Server via ssh?

I can via SSH
I read it.... ???
Will it have a return code? Will I see the success or failure in the interface?
