the reason we can't use transmission.app's prefs is because the cocoa frontend does not have the protocol functions required for the webui to talk to it.

we are still looking for a developer to add those for us.

Seems a really great idea and for a 0.1 version it seems to be going the right way!!

A few questions, if that's ok:
Since I already have Transmission on my Mac, can't Clutch use it's engine and preferences?
This way they would be always in sync.

I prefer to use transmission when I'm at home, but being able to "control" Transmission without having to use VNC would be great.
This way (making them use the same prefs) I wouldn't have the problem of duplicating my downloads as I end up having when I tried Clutch.

All in all a really great start!

Keep up the good work.

The processes running are lighttpd, php-cgi, transmission-daemon. They use a total of

Okay. It's still a bit weird that the frontend runs from the menu bar, though.

o_O A web server which runs in the menu bar? Wouldn't a daemon make more sense?
