Pieces Plugin


(c)2010 by Nick Lanham nick@afternight.org Thanks to Jens Timmerman jens.timmerman@gmail.com for some of the code to select multiple pieces


This plugin adds a tab that will show the status of each piece of the torrent.

There are three states for each piece: not downloaded (black), downloaded (red), or currently downloading (blue). These are indicated by color.

The plugin works in "Classic" mode, client/server mode, and with the webui. However, in the webui piece priority setting and display are not yet supported.

Piece Priorities

If you are using the gtkui you can easily set the priority of a piece or a set of pieces by selecting them, right-click and set the priority.

You can select multiple pieces in a few ways:

  • Click the first piece you want to select. Hold Shift and click the last piece you want to select. All pieces in between will be selected.
  • Clicking and dragging over the pieces you want to select
  • Holding Ctrl will start selecting pieces without unselecting the ones you have already selected

Underneath all the pieces is a checkbox that will allow you to always prioritize the first un-downloaded piece of the torrent. This lets you start watching a movie while it is still downloading. After completing the torrent you should continue to seed for a while, because this behaviour is actually not sociable and bad for the torrent protocol. Please use with care.

To install this plugin in deluge: go to edit, preferences, plugins, install plugin and select the .egg file.
