Here at ALE we’re getting ready for our big 1.0 release, and to ease the transition from BitTorrent to Anomos, I’ve just committed a new script which will convert a .torrent file or a directory full of .torrent files to .atorrent files which use our tracker.
As The Pirate Bay released their own database of torrents, with this script, it would be easy to move the world’s largest collection of torrent data to Anomos format with a single command. If anybody is interested and tries this experiment, send me an email and let me know how it went.
To use the script, get the latest version of Anomos from the testing git branch (see the Downloads page), and then run:
python anomosify.py --path /path/to/torrent/directory/
and watch it go! You can also use the –announce argument to supply a different announce URL.
Keep your eyes open, we should be releasing the complete 1.0 documentation some time in the next week for all you hackers and geeks interested in the design of Anomos networks.
