Docker pulls Docker stars Docker image status

docktorrent

Using Docker, rTorrent and ruTorrent to run a full-featured BitTorrent box.

Highlights

  • All-in-one Docker container, build once and run everywhere.
  • Newest version of rTorrent and ruTorrent, with support of DHT and asynchronous DNS which will results in a more responsive rTorrent.
  • Enable all useful ruTorrent plugins by default.
  • Get a working BitTorrent box in less than 3 minutes, give it a quick try and tune the configs later.
  • rTorrent will automatically restarts on crash or freeze.
  • No more boring installation, also keep your OS in a clean state.

Quick Start

Clone this repository and build the image locally:

git clone https://github.com/kfei/docktorrent
cd docktorrent
docker build -t docktorrent .

The building process may take some time. You can just pull the latest image from Docker Hub:

docker pull kfei/docktorrent

After the image is built or pulled, run the docktorrent container, for example:

docker run -it \
    -p 80:80 -p 45566:45566 -p 9527:9527/udp \
    --dns 8.8.8.8 \
    -v /data-store:/rtorrent \
    -e UPLOAD_RATE=1024 \
    kfei/docktorrent    # Or just `docktorrent` for locally built image

Note that:

  • The exposed ports are required for ruTorrent web interface, rTorrent listening and the DHT protocol according to the default .rtorrent.rc.
  • The --dns 8.8.8.8 argument is optional but recommended. It seems like the current version of rTorrent still has some DNS issues, using Google's DNS may help.
  • The /data-store volume is for all downloads, torrents and session data, just make sure the disk space is enough.
  • Override the upload_rate setting of rTorrent to 1024KB. Check the full list of available runtime configs.

If the container starts without errors, visit http://127.0.0.1 through any web browser, log in to with the default username/password: docktorrent/p@ssw0rd.

Happy seeding!

Runtime Configs

There are some environment variables can be supplied at run time:

  • LOGS_OFF: Set this to yes to turn off all logs generated by rTorrent and other services so that you don't have to worry about space for /var/log. Default is not set.
  • AUTH_OFF: Disable HTTP authentication on certain network. E.g., 192.168.1.0/24 or all.

Override settings in .rtorrent.rc:

  • IP overrides ip.
  • MAX_PEERS overrides max_peers.
  • MAX_PEERS_SEED overrides max_peers_seed.
  • MAX_UPLOADS overrides max_uploads.
  • DOWNLOAD_RATE overrides download_rate.
  • UPLOAD_RATE overrides upload_rate.

Requirement

All you need is to have Docker installed on your system. Check Docker Documentation for installation guide on your OS platform.

Tips

  • docker stop can gracefully shutdown rTorrent if you give it more time by docker stop -t 120 (which means 120 seconds to time out).

Bug reports and feature suggestions are both welcome. Feel free to use the issue tracker.
