A simple front-end for BitTorrent Protocol Daemon.

Overview

btpd-front is a simple btpd front-end. Btpd is the acronym for BitTorrent Protocol Daemon. BTPD is a bittorrent client consisting of a daemon and client commands, which can be used to read and/or manipulate the daemon state. The daemon is capable of running several torrents simultaneously and only uses one tcp port. It's fairly low on resource usage and should be perfect for file distribution sites. Efficient downloads and ease of use makes this client a good choice for the casual user as well.

Hi, I've installed btpd versions many times in the past -- I do a full install each time with OS X installer since internal updating mechanism failed for me when I tried it. In the last two or three builds, the lower buttons in the GUI sidebar for starting/stopping the daemon are gone. Yesterday, I installed 160, and since then I've been getting perl locale errors in bash... ??

Can anyone tell me what the E2 error code is telling me? I suspect it is saying the app is not compatible with a certain tracker since it always happens with the same tracker that gave me problems with Tomato. Happens in Tiger and in Leopard.

Yes, your icon can be considered funny. After about 5 minutes, it's shortcoming start to show itself. 1. You have no Azureus code in your application. 2. Being named BTPD Front, with the DAEMON abbreviated, the meaning of the daemon in the icon is lost. I made a quick icon out of some OSS images that I hope you will take the time to consider: http://sagefire.org/files/btpd-front-icons.zip You will see that there is a CLI interface with something in FRONT of it. And, the thing in front of it is a downloading widget. Granted, it isn't perfect, but it actually describes your application better than b***-f***ing someone else's icon.

Besides being funny, I recognize the icon just fine. Topping Azerus, with a BSD daemon. Sort of obvious really. Yours looks like a Terminal.app aid. At a stretch, maybe an icon for Macports or fink. Or a script for wget or curl.

just uploaded 0162; sorry, it was a stupid bug in English vesion. Perl locale errors; btpd-front doesn't use perl and btpd too and its installer doesn't move, replace or update any original system file.

Thanks for replying: I'm using the updated version happily. As for the locale problem, it was caused by losing the path setup with a recent fink update.

Wow! This just keeps getting better and better! (And, thank you for implementing my suggestion.) Here are two more for you to consider: 1) The only missing feature that I see is the ability to pick individual files inside a torrent to download. Once you have done that, you can do everything that I can ever imagine needing. 2) Have you considered sending that streaming status output to a widget? I put "btcli stat -in -w 5" into WidgetTerm ( http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/18859 ) and find that "cleaner" than starting a new Terminal session like you are doing right now.

1) The only missing feature that I see is the ability to pick individual files inside a torrent to download. this fetures is not supported by the unix daemon, so you must write to btpd coder, http://lists.stargirl.org/listinfo/btpd-users. 2) Have you considered sending that streaming status output to a widget? mnmm, I'll considering it

The developer of btpd-front may want to look into Sparkle: http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/20366. With the speed of revisions and bugfixes, adding auto-update functionality looks like a good idea to me.

Does this support encrypted traffic? I'd love to dump Azureus (resource hog), but my ISP throttles bittorrent traffic.
