Looks a lot like Transmission, maybe it is based on rTorrent too? Regardless, where can you get rTorrent from?
Love this program! Many thanks, Vladimir!The labels are very effective and can be used together with the labels in ruTorrent. I have my torrents labeled by tracker, and like being able to see the upload speed by the tracker (can't do this in rutorrent). Connecting to the rtorrent server was flawless, and surprisingly easy! (I signed up to macupdates just to say thanks =D)
Also want to note: The developer's site says Snow Leopard only, however it runs with no problem on my Mountain Lion install.
I still have yet to get this app to actually function. I start up rtorrent on a remote box, then tell Nativa to connect using ssh. Just spins on checking configuration, and I don't see any attempts to my remote box.
look into console, this will show you connection progress. If you will see any problems, report it here http://aramzamzam.lighthouseapp.com/projects/46068-nativa/tickets
As for opening new tickets, i'm not particulary interested in registering myself (and my email adress) on yet another website, but i'd be happy to share the output of console regarding nativa not connecting to my own torrent box; http://pastebin.org/290603
The log on the remote machine mentions no connection attempts, only one log stick out;
May 29 20:42:16 machine sshd: Bad protocol version identification '27:CONTENT_LENGTH' from 192.168.2.100
Mac mini 3.1, OSX 10.6.3 > rTorrent 0.8.6/0.12.6, Ubuntu 10.04
You are missing local port. Your configuration should look something like this http://cl.ly/e453bd8bd49bd8b6c717
Allright, i got it to work now. I thought "Local Port" (under SSH in nativa) had nothing to do with the scgi port i did set in rtorrent. Tricky stuff to figure out. Maybe you should expand the documentation on configuring nativa for new users? Thanks for the help BTW.
I got it to work as well. Dev, perhaps telling people that SSH can be used for remote networks. I didn't even need SSH here on my local network...ip of the rTorrent machines is 192.168.1.1, and my local box is 192.168.1.2, so I skipped the whole ssh tunnel thing. I think showing that sample on the site as well as really letting people know that they are establishing a remote tunnel would help.
Well I'm less interested in who copied who and more interested in what makes this any different to Transmission. Like the icon though
There are two main differences:
1. It utilizes rtorrent
2. It is working with remote torrent client, not local. It is comparable with transmission's remote GUI, but without a browser.
3. It much more "geeky" for now in comparison to transmission
LOTS of code and ideas used from transmission's ui
Nativa is not suitable for use with locally installed rtorrent. Main purpose is to control remote rtorrent daemon (it can be installed on your home server, router, etc.)
For common needs I recommend you to use transmission or utorrent - whatever.
rtorrent version from macports build agains outdated library and contains bug with torrent sizes. Be warned ;)
Thanks for the information. I think I'll stick with utorrent.
OK, I give up. Being bittorent-challenged, how do I get it to work?
This is a GUI front-end for rtorrent, a command-line bittorrent client. Use MacPorts to install rtorrent. Be sure to install the xmlrpc variant. (First you need to study MacPorts, if you don't know how to use it.) Then configure rtorrent to accept scgi connections as mentioned on the Nativa homepage.
Or just forget about it and use Transmission or uTorrent. I wanted to use rtorrent + Nativa because Transmission is a memory hog, but it turns out Transmission is based on rtorrent, and rtorrent has the same problem. I finally switched to uTorrent, it does not hog memory, but unfortunately it has no remote interface yet -- supposedly they are working on a web UI for it.
Transmission is in no way whatsoever based on rtorrent nor any other client.
Not bad at all.
Good use of an open source project for another open source project.
Lightweight and fast.
Much better than the rip off software called xtorrent. Paid for version 1 and got screwed for version 2. Now I just use isohunt and scrapetorrent for searching.
If Nativa is good, have you tried Transmission? :)
Hehe, unsure. No one blames plex or boxee in xmbc ripoff. The reason is other ;)
Just to be clear, the Transmission project isn't accusing you of a ripoff. The Transmission license is clear about allowing you to use the code, and you're encouraged to.
Thanks for giving credit to Transmission in your new release :)
I can say, transmission's code is of high quality. I have carefully taken it into Nativa :)
Does anyone else think this looks like a pretty straight rip-off of Transmission's interface?
Transmission is open-source, rtorrent is open-source. Seems like the dev is just using what is available and works to bring more options to more OS X users. I say thanks for that, but give credit where credit is due, no worries.
> Transmission is open-source, rtorrent is open-source.
And yet, Nativa isn't. Ironic, no?
Nativa licensed under GPL V3
sources available her http://bitbucket.org/vovasty/nativa/src/
I stand corrected. Thanks for the link!
....though, it looks like you actually are using the source code to Transmission's Mac GUI. This is allowed (and happily encouraged :) by that code's license, but it would be nice if you gave credit to Transmission, such as in the help dialog or on your homepage.
Sure, I will.
It is interesting, all focused on ripoff of transmission UI (for example, no one pointed on Cyberduck, safari downloads, etc.)
And uTorrent-like UI's never blamed in ripoffs. Very interesting :)
There's a difference between inspiration and literally using the same code. :)
