  • Your program sucks. It doesn't support my bittorrent client

What an opportunity! Now open an issue telling me which bittorrent client you would like to see next :)

  • What kind of technologies are used to build this?

The application is build around Electron, AngularJS and SemanticUI

  • I can't connect to rTorrent what is wrong?

When using rTorrent you have to configure your http server correctly. Follow this guide to make sure you have it set up correctly. Alternative you may be able to use /plugins/httprpc/action.php as the path if your have the HTTPRPC plugin installed.
