I'm a recent PC to Mac convert, so not too hot on the mac just yet, but not afraid of a command line as was competent in DOS.

Use BitTorrent currently, a Windows Friend tells me BitTornado is much faster - have installed it using DarwinPorts, but am having no luck searching these forums in actually finding how i run the program (as either a command prompt or GUI)

Any pointers to how to use this program would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

1. install developer tools
2. download and install python for mac os x
3. download and install wxpython for mac os x
4. download and unpack bittornado.tar.gz
5. execute "BitTornado/setup.py install" (in a terminal)
6. copy BitTornado/*.py to somewhere in $PATH

to use a torrent-file you have to execute (in a terminal) "pythonw btdownloadgui.py file.torrent" for the GUI-Version or "python btdownloadcurses.py file.torrent" for the text-Version

if you need an executeable-file (for mac) - i prefer that you have to:

7. execute "/Developer/.../Tools/Python-2.3-Mac/MakeExec.app" and give give him the file "btdownloadgui.py" - BEFORE THAT YOU HAVE TO INSTALL THE BITTORNADO-FILES (EXECUTE "...../setup.py install")

does this "MakeExec.app" also assign *.torrent to an Bittornado? because this would be great, making files doubleclickable in the Finder.

At first:

i have to correct something

1. install developer tools
2. download and install python for mac os x
3. download and install wxpython for mac os x
4. download and unpack bittornado.tar.gz
5. execute "sudo BitTornado/setup.py install" (in a terminal, root is important)
6. copy BitTornado/*.py to somewhere in $PATH (if you make an executeable, you don't have to do this - this is only for the execution in a terminal)

to use a torrent-file you have to execute (in a terminal) "pythonw btdownloadgui.py file.torrent" for the GUI-Version or "python btdownloadcurses.py file.torrent" for the text-Version

if you need an executeable-file (for mac) - i prefer that you have to:

7. execute "/Developer/Applicatins/Utilities/MacPython-2.3/BuildApplet.app" and give give him the file "btdownloadgui.py" - BEFORE THAT YOU HAVE TO INSTALL THE BITTORNADO-FILES (EXECUTE "sudo ...../setup.py install")
8. doubleclick on file.torrent - he asks you to choose the application btdownloadgui.app - check the everytime-box

it is done now

but note the btdownloadgui.app has one disadvantage - you can only execute one torrent at a time

I've downloaded all the files required to use BitTornado on mac. I opened up the setup.py and from there I have no idea what to do. Could anyone explain to an absolute newbie such as myself what to do step by step?

Many thanks.

Alrighty I just got it all working tonight and it is fantastic (Can't change the ports on it so just had to change the routers ports) 350dl 100up. I will just clarify some of the rest of the instructions on how I got it

1. install developer tools

2. download and install python for mac os x (http://homepages.cwi.nl/~jack/macpython/)

3. download and install wxpython for mac os x (http://www.wxpython.org)
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/wxpy ... -py2.3.dmg

4. download and unpack bittornado.tar.gz. I placed the BitTornado-CVS folder in my Applications folder

5. In terminal change directories so you are inside BitTornado-CVS and excecute this command "sudo ./setup.py install"

6. Make the changes listed in this site in the btdownloadgui.py file http://lists.wxwidgets.org/cgi-bin/ezml ... lbfjgaehom

7. In finder go to /Developer/Applications/Utilities/MacPython-2.3/BuildApplet.app and select the btdownloadgui.py file from the BitTornado-CVS folder. This will place an app icon where-ever you want it and you can open the program from here.

I followed all the steps mentioned in the guide (including installing MacPython, installing wxPython, the edits in btdownloadgui.py and creating an app) for creating a Mac application. When I double click on the .app file I created, it launches and immediately terminates.

I have no clue about Python. How can I find out what's going wrong and what could I do to correct it?

I'm using Mac OS 10.4.1 (Tiger) and I downloaded the latest compatible versions of MacPython and wxPython.

Thanks for all your help! :)

Ok, to add a little more to my post - I followed the instructions to run the GUI app from the terminal and this is what I see (doesn't matter if I pass a .torrent filename on the command line):

$ pythonw btdownloadgui.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "btdownloadgui.py", line 29, in ?
from BitTornado.ConfigReader import configReader
File "/Applications/BitTornado-CVS/BitTornado/ConfigReader.py", line 40, in ?

When I get to the sudo ./setup.py install line it says file not found, but when I ls to check if I'm in the right directory, I can see the setup.py right there in the directory. What is going on?
