What is this?

rTorrent-PS is a rTorrent distribution (not a fork of it), in form of a set of patches that improve the user experience and stability of official rTorrent releases. See the changelog for a timeline of applied changes, especially those since the last official release.

Note that rTorrent-PS is not the same as the PyroScope command line utilities, and doesn't depend on them; the same is true the other way 'round. It's just that both unsurprisingly have synergies if used together, and some features do only work when both are present.

How do I use it?

See the main documentation for details about installing and using rTorrent-PS.

To get in contact and share your experiences with other users of PyroScope, join the rtorrent-community channel rtorrent-ps on Gitter.

This is also the way to resolve any problems with or questions about your configuration and software installation.
