What is this?
If you don't know what Torrent Paradise is, see the website.
This is a repository of all the tools I use to build and run torrent-paradise.ml. The 'code name' of the project is nextgen (next gen torrent search), so don't be surprised if it comes up somewhere.
Can you help me?
Maybe, open an issue. Be sure to demonstrate an effort that you tried to solve the problem yourself.
Here's what the setup looks like rn:
- VPS, Debian Stretch, 2 GB RAM
PostgreSQL 9.6. pg_hba.conf contains this:
local all all peer # IPv4 local connections: host nextgen nextgen localhost md5
user with username nextgen on the server
- my laptop w/ Linux
- Go toolchain installed
- node v10.15 & npm
- Python 3 (required only for index-generator/fix-metajson.py)
The programs create their own tables in the DB that they need. Database name is "nextgen".
What I did first after getting the server up and running was importing the TPB dump. Download https://thepiratebay.org/static/dump/csv/torrent_dump_full.csv.gz to the import-tpb-dump directory and run
Generate the index
update-index.sh. Before running it for the first time, you should create the materialized view fresh. For instructions, see the first paragraph of snippets.sql.
Spider the DHT
go build in spider/ to compile and scp the binary it to the server. You can use the systemd service file in
spider/spider.service to start the spider on server boot.
Scraping trackers for seed/leech data
go build in tracker-scraper/ to compile and scp the binary it to the server. Run it every time you want to fetch new seed/leech data for all torrents.
tracker-scraper saves the results into the trackerdata table in database.
Before working on something, open an issue to ask if it would be okay. I would love to KISS.
