pyrocore 0.5.3

PyroCore - Python Torrent Tools Core Package

Package Documentation

This project provides a collection of tools for the BitTorrent protocol and especially the rTorrent client. They enable you to filter rTorrent’s item list for displaying or changing selected items, also creating, inspecting and changing .torrent files, and much more.

An optional daemon process (pyrotorque) can add flexible queue management for rTorrent, starting items added in bulk slowly over time according to customizable rules. The same daemon can also watch one or more directory trees recursively for new metafiles using inotify, resulting in instantaneous loading without any polling and no extra configuration for nested directories.

The PyroScope command line utilities are not the same as the sibling project rTorrent-PS, and they work perfectly fine without it; the same is true the other way ‘round. It’s just that both unsurprisingly have synergies if used together, and some features do only work when both are present.

Further information can be found in the main documentation.
