A tiny bittorrent library

BitLet is a simple Java implementation of the BitTorrent protocol.

It is the library that powers (a BitTorrent client that runs entirely in the browser plugin, as a Java applet).

Trying out the BitLet library

You can build the project sources using Maven, and execute a sample client by calling:

java -cp target/wetorrent-1.0-SNAPSHOT.jar org.bitlet.wetorrent.Sample $1

Where $1 is a .torrent file you have on your filesystem.

Developing with BitLet

You can review this annotated example for an overview on how to use the BitLet library.
