    Parse a torrent identifier (magnet uri, .torrent file, info hash)

    Works in node and the browser (with browserify). This module is used by WebTorrent!

    install

    npm install parse-torrent
    

    usage

    parse

    The return value of parseTorrent will contain as much info as possible about the torrent. The only property that is guaranteed to be present is infoHash.

    const parseTorrent = require('parse-torrent')
    const fs = require('fs')
    
    // info hash (as a hex string)
    parseTorrent('d2474e86c95b19b8bcfdb92bc12c9d44667cfa36')
    // { infoHash: 'd2474e86c95b19b8bcfdb92bc12c9d44667cfa36' }
    
    // info hash (as a Buffer)
    parseTorrent(new Buffer('d2474e86c95b19b8bcfdb92bc12c9d44667cfa36', 'hex'))
    // { infoHash: 'd2474e86c95b19b8bcfdb92bc12c9d44667cfa36' }
    
    // magnet uri (as a utf8 string)
    parseTorrent('magnet:?xt=urn:btih:d2474e86c95b19b8bcfdb92bc12c9d44667cfa36')
    // { xt: 'urn:btih:d2474e86c95b19b8bcfdb92bc12c9d44667cfa36',
    //   infoHash: 'd2474e86c95b19b8bcfdb92bc12c9d44667cfa36' }
    
    // magnet uri with torrent name
    parseTorrent('magnet:?xt=urn:btih:d2474e86c95b19b8bcfdb92bc12c9d44667cfa36&dn=Leaves%20of%20Grass%20by%20Walt%20Whitman.epub')

    encode

    The reverse works too. To convert an object of keys/value to a magnet uri or .torrent file buffer, use toMagnetURI and toTorrentFile.

    const parseTorrent = require('parse-torrent')
    
    const uri = parseTorrent.toMagnetURI({
      infoHash: 'd2474e86c95b19b8bcfdb92bc12c9d44667cfa36'
    })
    console.log(uri) // 'magnet:?xt=urn:btih:d2474e86c95b19b8bcfdb92bc12c9d44667cfa36'
    
    const buf = parseTorrent.toTorrentFile({
      info: {
        /* ... */
      }
    })
    console.log(buf)

    remote torrents

    To support remote torrent identifiers (i.e. http/https links to .torrent files, or filesystem paths), as well as Blobs use the parseTorrent.remote function. It takes a callback since these torrent types require async operations:

    parseTorrent.remote(torrentId, (err, parsedTorrent) => {
      if (err) throw err
      console.log(parsedTorrent)
    })

    If the torrentId is an http/https link to the .torrent file, then the request to the file can be modified by passing simple-get params. For example:

    parseTorrent.remote(torrentId, { timeout: 60 * 1000 }, (err, parsedTorrent) => {
      if (err) throw err
      console.log(parsedTorrent)
    })

    command line program

    This package also includes a command line program.

    Usage: parse-torrent /path/to/torrent
           parse-torrent magnet_uri
           parse-torrent --stdin
    

    To install it, run:

    npm install parse-torrent -g
