Programmatically control transmission-gtk's “turtle mode”

Post by Louis30 » Mon Aug 05, 2019 11:51 am

I have a script that surrounds a particular program with setup and teardown commands involving networking/routing etc. I'd like to add control of Transmission to that, such that while the program's running, Transmission is in "turtle mode", as if I'd clicked the button to activate the lower bandwidth limits. Is there a way to do this?

Editing the config file kinda works, but I haven't found a way to tell Transmission-GTK to reload its configs without restarting.
