OfflineBay by TechTac
OfflineBay is a free and open-source tool created to hold and parse copies of torrent archive dumps. So it allows you to search and download torrents offline. OfflineBay can parse CSV files with many torrenting related added features. The parsing is programmed to match the structure of dump files created by The Pirate Bay. But any group or organization can follow that same structure to create dump files to be used with OfflineBay.
OfflineBay is Free and Open-source software licensed under MIT License. This software is created to parse CSV dump files created by a third party and any of the data other than this software is not provided by TechTac. Use the data at your own risk. TechTac will not be responsible for any of the data acquired using dump files. It is strongly advised not to use OfflineBay for any copyright infringing activities. OfflineBay will not hide or protect you from authorities if you engage in such activities.
OfflineBay is distributed as a portable application in favor of the majority. Download the corresponding package and extract the ZIP file. All of the packages should have an executable (double-clickable) along with some other files. File named
OfflineBay would be the executable file.
NOTE: Linux users may need to declare the file as an executable before running -
chmod +x OfflineBay
Why downloads are larger than the previous version?
Well, OfflineBay 2 is created using Electron and NodeJS. So the disk footprint could be a little concerning. There is no way around this issue. This is one small compromise for a lot of improvements.

WARNING: Since OfflineBay is now open-source you could stumble upon some modified versions of OfflineBay. If you get infected with malware by going off the proper channels, i won't take any blame for them.

How to remove OfflineBay?
I personally believe that none of the applications should leave any residue in the removal process. Unlike other portable apps OfflineBay will not leave anything behind once you hit delete on the application folder. It's valid for all platforms. Everything will be removed including Dump files, configurations and error logs.
Build OfflineBay yourself
NOTE: When creating OfflineBay i almost managed to completely avoid native modules. But there's a single module named
bufferutil that's required by another module. You may run into a few errors when building if you don't have platform build tools for
node-gyp. You can simply ignore those errors since the module is an optional dependency. Also since OfflineBay practically has no native dependencies, it's possible to cross-build without any complications. But i cannot guarantee on the outcome.
Clone this repository,
cd to that directory and run
