torrent-mount

Mount a torrent (or magnet link) as a filesystem in real time using torrent-stream and fuse.

AKA MAD SCIENCE!

npm install -g torrent-mount

You also need to install fuse. See this link for more info.

Usage

Open a terminal and cd to a directory where you want to mount your torrent

torrent-mount magnet:?xt=urn:btih:ef330b39f4801d25b4245212e75a38634bfc856e
Usage: torrent-mount <source>... [options]

source     .torrent file or magnet link to open

Options:
    -m PATH, --mount PATH   Mount location path [directory]  [.]
    -l, --lazy              Download only if accessed

After doing that open the same directory using a file browser. The files of the torrent should be mounted there now and you should be able to double-click them to start streaming as regular files!

Troubleshoot

Download the latest osxfuse dmg using this link and install it

http://sourceforge.net/projects/osxfuse/files/latest/download?source=files

The one provided by brew doesn't always seem to work. You also need pkg-config:

brew install pkg-config
