peerflix-server

Streaming torrent client for node.js with web ui.

Based on torrent-stream, inspired by peerflix.

  1. npm install -g peerflix-server
  2. peerflix-server
  3. Open your browser at http://localhost:9000/
  4. Enjoy!

You can configure the application using ~/.config/peerflix-server/config.json file (doesn't exist by default). The options are passed to all torrent-stream instances. Here's an example that overrides the defaults:

{
  "connections": 50,
  "tmp": "/mnt/torrents"
}

The application stores its current state (list of torrents) in ~/.config/peerflix-server/torrents.json

If you want to run peerflix-server as a daemon, you can do it using forever:

npm install -g forever

forever start /usr/local/bin/peerflix-server (the path depends on your distribution and npm configuration)

You might also want to enable logging -- see the docs.
