This is a simple command-line-interface BitTorrent client coded in the go programming language.
- Supports multiple torrent files
- Magnet links
- UDP trackers
- UPnP / NAT-PMP automatic firewall configuration
- Socks5 proxy support
- It can act as a tracker if you start it with the --createTracker flag
- SFTP file system proxying enables torrenting large torrents on systems with limited local file storage.
Q: Why is it named Taipei Torrent?
A: I started writing it while visiting beautiful Taipei, Taiwan
Q: What is the license?
A: See the LICENSE file.
- Tested on Go 1.4.2 and tip.
- Tested on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.
- People tell me they've run it on Android, too.
- Full UPnP support (need to be able to search for an unused listener port, detect we have already acquired the port, defend the report against router reboots, release the listener port when we quit.)
- Clean up source code
- Deal with TODOs
- Perhaps a web-based status UI.
