cross-seed is an app designed to help you download torrents that you can cross
seed based on your existing torrents. It is designed to match conservatively to
minimize manual intervention.
cross-seed can inject the torrents it finds directly into your torrent client.
Currently the supported clients are
If your client isn't supported,
cross-seed will download a bunch of torrent
files to a folder you specify. After that, I recommend using
AutoTorrent to do the last-mile
delivery into your client.
It will work on Mac and on Linux; I haven't tested it on Windows but it should work there too.
cross-seed is almost as simple as:
Here's an example invocation:
npx cross-seed search \ --jackett-server-url http://localhost:9117/jackett \ --jackett-api-key JACKETT_API_KEY \ --torrent-dir /home/rtorrent/.session \ --output-dir /tmp/torrents
You either need to give it a lot of command-line arguments or create a configuration file.

You don't need to install this app, but if
you can install it globally:
npm install -g cross-seed
Then you can run the app with:
npm uninstall -g cross-seed npm install -g cross-seed
cross-seed supports a daemon mode, wherein the app is always running, and you
can trigger an HTTP request to search for cross-seeds of a specific torrent. See
