servtorrent =========== Written on EH 2010 in Munich. Extended on Erlang Geekend 03-2011 in Metabene Berlin. Purpose ------- Your Podcast is too popular for your web server? Your audience has Podcast clients that support downloading via BitTorent, e.g. Miro? servtorrent ensures that there's always a seeder by uploading transparently from any HTTP location that supports Range requests. Installation ------------ 1. Install Erlang 2. Activate and update submodules * git submodule init * git submodule update Running ------- 1. Copy seeds.example.xml to seeds.xml and customize (the data directory is setup for this, put the torrents in data/torrents and the files in data/files - you can use absolute paths in the seeds.xml file as well and use your own structure). When dealing with multi file torrents make sure the data part points inside and not at the first directory. 2. Make sure the port specified in servtorrent.app is reachable from the Internet (servtorrent will not use peer info from tracker responses). 3. Compile and run by issuing: ./start.sh TODO ---- * Super-seeding * Slot queues * PEX * DHT support * Support Chaos Bay web-seeding
