    Torrent Pi

    Raspberry PI - Stream from torrents easily with a web remote.

    Based on nilakshdas/flixtor

    Install from Scratch

    It is recommended that you use a large SD card, 8 GB should be enough.

    Prerequisites

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    wget http://node-arm.herokuapp.com/node_latest_armhf.deb
    sudo dpkg -i node_latest_armhf.deb
    

    Install Torrent Pi

    git clone --recursive https://github.com/jaruba/torrent-pi.git
    cd torrent-pi
    sudo npm install
    

    installing might take longer then you expect

    Setup auto-login for your RPi

    sudo nano /etc/inittab
    

    change this line:

    1:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty 115200 tty1
    

    to this line:

    1:2345:respawn:/bin/login -f pi tty1 </dev/tty1> /dev/tty1 2>&1
    

    Setup Torrent Pi to run on start-up

    Note: Torrent Pi does not require the Desktop GUI, this guide explains how to run it from the main terminal directly.

    sudo nano /etc/profile
    

    add this line to the end of the file:

    . /home/pi/torrentPi.sh
    

    now do:

    sudo nano /home/pi/torrentPi.sh
    

    and write:

    sudo node /home/pi/torrent-pi/app.js
    

    If you did not install torrent-pi in the default directory of your pi, make sure to change the path to the app.js file from your install path.

    If this does not work, then it is most probably because of namespace collision and you should replace node with nodejs.
