Simple, robust, BitTorrent "swarm" implementation

This is a node.js abstraction of a BitTorrent "swarm", which is handy for managing all peer connections for a given torrent download. This handles connecting to peers, listening for incoming connections, and doing the initial peer wire protocol handshake with peers. It also tracks total data uploaded/downloaded to/from the swarm.

This module is used by WebTorrent.

install

npm install bittorrent-swarm

methods

var Swarm = require('bittorrent-swarm')

var swarm = new Swarm(myInfoHash, myPeerId)

swarm.on('wire', function(wire) {
    // a relevant wire has appeared, see `bittorrent-protocol` for more info

    wire.on('unchoke', function() {
        // we are now unchoked
    })

    swarm.wires // <- list of all connected wires
});

swarm.addPeer('127.0.0.1:42442') // add a peer
swarm.removePeer('127.0.0.1:42244') // remove a peer
