rtorrent-mod: rtorrent with a nicer interface

I don't know if this is the right sub forum or if this is supposed to go to artwork. Anyway, I made a small rewrite of rtorrent main screen:

shot_thumb.png

added features:

- added colors
- torrent display shortened to 2 lines, better visibility
- added peer count to main screen
- better formatting on screen resize
- other small tweaks to torrent infos
- an IP filter patch (upstream ticket)
- example rtorrent.rc

AUR package

Please test and post your suggestions (too many colors? bugs in display? other stuff?).

Thanks.

Good work, but you should submit it upstream. Only Arch users will see it here.

looks great, if you could add a string filter with / it will be superawesome!

Will do. Since I never done that before via Trac, does it involve just opening a ticket with patch attached?

Please be more specific, I didn't understand your request smile

Yeah - or if that doesn't work out, send it to the ML.

i meant a way to find specific torrents by name, especially useful with a lot (50/100+) of torrents running. a name-based filter invoked by for instance "/", where you can type some letters and only the torrents matching that string are listed

That's probably a bit out of scope...

Agreed, I don't understand the code structure that well... it probably could be done but with some time spent studying the code. Maybe in a future smile

Re: rtorrent-mod: rtorrent with a nicer interface

litemotiv - submit the feature request upstream as well. The rtorrent dev and/or a hacker from another distro might like the idea.

Re: rtorrent-mod: rtorrent with a nicer interface

It's funny, I was just thinking the other day that rtorrent's display is a pain to read, and then this shows up. Patches cleanly on top of rtorrent-extended (if you discard the included color patches).

Thanks!

Re: rtorrent-mod: rtorrent with a nicer interface

Nice one! I am using it right now.

Would it be possible to make the colors editable? Preferably from the .rtorrent.rc?

Something like
color_active = 0xffffff
color_error = 0xff0000

that would be awesome smile

Please check if it conflicts with canvas_color patch, it patches the same files as mine...

Re: rtorrent-mod: rtorrent with a nicer interface

So will the customizing color function be added soon? big_smile Great work though, just what rtorrent needed.
