Towards making Bittorrent anonymous and impossible to shut down.

We use our own dedicated Tor-like network for anonymous torrent downloading. We implemented and enhanced the Tor protocol specifications. Tribler includes our own Tor-like onion routing network with hidden services based seeding and end-to-end encryption.

Tribler aims to give anonymous access to content. We are trying to make privacy, strong cryptography, and authentication the Internet norm.

For the past 11 years we have been building a very robust Peer-to-Peer system. Today Tribler is robust: "the only way to take Tribler down is to take The Internet down" (but a single software bug could end everything).

Running Tribler from the repository

We support development on Linux, macOS and Windows. We have written documentation that guides you through installing the required packages when setting up a Tribler development environment.

Packaging Tribler

We have written guides on how to package Tribler for distribution on various systems.

Docker support

Dockerfile is provided with the source code which can be used to build the docker image.

To build the docker image:

docker build -t triblercore/triblercore:latest .

To run the built docker image:

docker run -p 20100:20100 --net="host" triblercore/triblercore:latest

Note that by default, the REST API is bound to localhost inside the container so to access the APIs, network needs to be set to host (--net="host").

To use the local state directory and downloads directory, the volumes can be mounted:

docker run -p 20100:20100 --net="host" -v ~/.Tribler:/state -v ~/downloads/TriblerDownloads:/downloads triblercore/triblercore:latest

The REST APIs are now accessible at: http://localhost:20100/docs

Docker Compose

Tribler core can also be started using Docker Compose. For that, a docker-compose.yml file is available on the project root directory.

To run via docker compose:

docker-compose up

To run in detached mode:

docker-compose up -d

To stop Tribler:

docker-compose down
