UDPT is a UDP based torrent tracker which fully implements BEP-15.
This project was written in Rust, it is a complete rewrite of a previous C/C++ UDPT project (which is still currently available in the
v2.1 tag of the repository).
- UDP torrent tracking server
- In memory database
- Choice of Dynamic/Static/Private tracker modes
- Ability to block a torrent from being tracked
- HTTP REST API for management
- Windows Service or Linux/Unix daemon
The easiest way is to get built binaries from Releases, but building from sources should be fairly easy as well:
git clone https://github.com/naim94a/udpt.git cd udpt cargo build --release
Please report any bugs you find to our issue tracker. Ideas and feature requests are welcome as well!
Any pull request targeting existing issues would be very much appreciated.
Why was UDPT rewritten in rust?
For a few reasons,
- Rust makes it harder to make mistakes than C/C++, It provides memory safety without runtime cost.
- Rust allows easier cross-platform development with it's powerful standard library.
- Integrated tests and benchmarks.
UDPT was originally developed for fun in 2012 by @naim94a.
The UDPT project would like to thank JetBrains for providing us with a Open Source license for the best IDEs there are out there!
