GoDoc CircleCI Astronomer Rating GitHub Release PkgGoDev

This repository implements BitTorrent-related packages and command-line utilities in Go. The emphasis is on use as a library from other projects. It's been used 24/7 in production by downstream services since late 2014. The implementation was specifically created to explore Go's concurrency capabilities, and to include the ability to stream data directly from the BitTorrent network. To this end it supports seeking, readaheads and other features exposing torrents and their files with the various Go idiomatic io package interfaces. This is also demonstrated through torrentfs.

There is support for protocol encryption, DHT, PEX, uTP, and various extensions. There are several data storage backends provided: blob, file, bolt, and mmap, to name a few. You can write your own to store data for example on S3, or in a database.

Some noteworthy package dependencies that can be used for other purposes include:


Install the library package with go get, or the provided cmds with go get

Library examples

There are some small examples in the package documentation.

Downstream projects

There are several web-frontends and Android clients among the known public projects:


Communication about the project is primarily through Gitter and the issue tracker.

Command packages

Here I'll describe what some of the packages in ./cmd do.

Note that the godo command which is invoked in the following examples builds and executes a Go import path, like go run. It's easier to use this convention than to spell out the install/invoke cycle for every single example.


Downloads torrents from the command-line. This first example does not use godo.

$ go get
# Now 'torrent' should be in $GOPATH/bin, which should be in $PATH.
$ torrent download 'magnet:?xt=urn:btih:KRWPCX3SJUM4IMM4YF5RPHL6ANPYTQPU'

torrentfs mounts a FUSE filesystem at -mountDir. The contents are the torrents described by the torrent files and magnet links at -metainfoDir. Data for read requests is fetched only as required from the torrent network, and stored at -downloadDir.

$ mkdir mnt torrents
$ godo -mountDir=mnt -metainfoDir=torrents &

    Package torrent implements a torrent client. Goals include:

    * Configurable data storage, such as file, mmap, and piece-based.
    * Downloading on demand: torrent.Reader will request only the data required to
      satisfy Reads, which is ideal for streaming and torrentfs.

    BitTorrent features implemented include:

    * Protocol obfuscation
    * DHT
    * uTP
    * PEX
    * Magnet links
    * IP Blocklists
    * Some IPv6
    * HTTP and UDP tracker clients
    * BEPs:
     -  3: Basic BitTorrent protocol
     -  5: DHT
     -  6: Fast Extension (have all/none only)
     -  7: IPv6 Tracker Extension
     -  9: ut_metadata
     - 10: Extension protocol
     - 11: PEX
     - 12: Multitracker metadata extension
     - 15: UDP Tracker Protocol
     - 20: Peer ID convention ("-GTnnnn-")
     - 23: Tracker Returns Compact Peer Lists
     - 29: uTorrent transport protocol
     - 41: UDP Tracker Protocol Extensions
     - 42: DHT Security extension
     - 43: Read-only DHT Nodes

                                  Various connection-level metrics. At the Torrent level these are aggregates. Chunks are messages with data payloads. Data is actual torrent content without any overhead. Useful is something we needed locally. Unwanted is something we didn't ask for (but may still be useful). Written is things sent to the peer, and Read is stuff received from them. Due to the implementation of Count, must be aligned on some platforms: See
