Project Description

Stupid, simple torrent client built on top of libtorrent python binding.

Let you add torrents files and magnet and receive libtorrent alerts. That’s all !

  • Free software: WTFPL


  • TODO

Full example

This example show how to add a magnet uri and how to create an alert handler.

Alert handler methods sould be named ‘on_ALERT’, with ALERT the type of alert to handle.

All methods will receive the session as first argument and the alert as the second.

Please note that this example is not exhaustive.
