To use a plugin on a single archive, you need to access its editing page by clicking the pencil icon on the main view. From here, you can modify all metadata manually. Don't forget to save!
Editing an Archive's Metadata
The "Delete Archive" button will permanently wipe the Archive from your filesystem!
LANraragi supports the use of Plugins to fetch tags for your archives Said Plugins can be used in three different ways:
- On a per-archive basis through the standard Edit dialog
- Automatically on every newly added archive.
- During a Batch Tagging session.
For more info on Batch Tagging, check the following article:
To use plugins automatically, you have to first use the Plugin Configuration page to choose which plugins will be automatically executed, and set their options if they need any.
Plugin Configuration (on this screenshot, eze and regex parsing will be executed automatically.)
LRR ships with a few plugins out of the box, in the /lib/LANraragi/Plugins folder. To install other Plugins (in .pm format), drag them to this folder and they'll appear in Plugin Configuration.
You can also install Plugins through the "Install Plugin" button in Plugin Configuration. This feature requires Debug Mode to be enabled for security purposes. Debug Mode can be disabled once you're done installing Plugins.
Plugins have as much control over your system as the main LANraragi application does!
When installing Plugins from unknown sources, do a little research first.
If your archive has a
source:tag (likely from the use of the built-in downloading feature), many plugins will use said tag to directly fetch metadata from it without having to use heuristics of any kind to guess what your archive is.
If you have the URL on hand directly, you can either add it as a
source:tag to your archive, or use it as a one-shot parameter on most downloader plugins.
