mktorrent 1.1

Utility to create BitTorrent metainfo files

mktorrent is a simple command-line utility to create BitTorrent metainfo files, often known simply as torrents, from both single files and whole directories. It can add multiple trackers and web seed URLs, and set the private flag to disallow advertisement through the distributed hash table (DHT) and Peer Exchange. Hashing is multi-threaded and will take advantage of multiple processor cores where possible.


Install mktorrent 1.1 as follows:

guix install mktorrent@1.1

Or install the latest version:

guix install mktorrent

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
