bulb - Is not stem

Yawning Angel (yawning at torproject dot org)

bulb is a Go language interface to the Tor control port. It is considerably lighter in functionality than stem and other controller libraries, and is intended to be used in combination withcontrol-spec.txt.

It was written primarily as a not-invented-here hack, and the base interface is more than likely to stay fairly low level, though useful helpers will be added as I need them.

Things you should probably use instead:


  • bulb does not send the 'QUIT' command before closing the connection.
