Simple asyncio-based UDP BitTorrent tracker, with a simple client.
pybtracker is a UDP BitTorrent tracker written in Python 3.5 using co-routines and the asyncio module. You can use the tracker in a script like this:
from pybtracker import TrackerServer loop = asyncio.get_event_loop() tracker = TrackerServer(local_addr=('127.0.0.1', 8000), loop=loop) asyncio.ensure_future(tracker.start()) try: loop.run_forever() except KeyboardInterrupt: loop.run_until_complete(tracker.stop())
It also includes a UDP tracker client:
from pybtracker import TrackerClient async def announce(): client = TrackerServer(local_addr='udp://127.0.0.1:8000', loop=loop) await client.start() peers = await client.announce( b'01234567890123456789', # infohash 10000, # downloaded 40000, # left 5000, # uploaded 0, # event (0=none) 120 # number of peers wanted ) print(peers) loop = asyncio.get_event_loop() loop.run_until_complete(announce())
You can run the server independently by running:
$ python -m pybtracker.server -b 127.0.0.1:8000 -O
The client can also be run independently and it provides you with a shell to interact with the server:
$ python -m pybtracker.client udp://127.0.0.1:8000 BitTorrent tracker client. Type help or ? to list commands. (btrc) help Documented commands (type help <topic>): ======================================== EOF announce connect help quit (btrc) quit $
If you have installed pybtracker using pip or setup.py, you can also run pybtracker and pybtracker-client instead of using python -m.
