Torrengo is a CLI (command line) program written in Go which concurrently searches torrent files from various sources. I really liked the torrench program which is an equivalent written in Python so I figured it could be nice to write a similar program in Go in order to increase speed thanks to concurrency.
Nice supported features:
Current supported sources are the following:
Caution! Apart from Archive.org, the websites above might host some illegal content and in some countries their use might be prohibited. Read legal issues regarding The Pirate Bay for example. Neither I, nor the tool shall be held responsible for any action taken against you for using goGetorrent on the above-mentioned sites.
For security reasons I don't provide with compiled binaries. The program can be easily installed and compiled with the usual Go tools:
go get git.sr.ht/~rek2/goGetorrent
go build git.sr.ht/~rek2/goGetorrent
Each website's scraper is an independent library that can be installed and reused. For example if you only want to use the Archive.org scraping library, simply do:
go get git.sr.ht/~rek2/goGetorrent/arc
Searching "Dumas Montecristo" from all sources is as simple as:
goGetorrent Dumas Montecristo
If you want to search from a specific source (let's say Archive.org):
goGetorrent -s arc Dumas Montecristo
If you want to search from multiple sources (let's say Archive.org and ThePirateBay), use commas:
goGetorrent -s arc,tpb Dumas Montecristo
If some sources are too slow to respond, use a timeout. For example the following stops every HTTP requests that take more than 2 seconds and returns the other results found:
goGetorrent -t 2000 Dumas Montecristo
if you want to use ThePirateBay search over TOR [only ThePirateBay can work under tor for now]:
goGetorrent -tor -s tpb Dumas Montecristo
Some sources give both a magnet link and a torrent file (you can choose which one you want), some only give a torrent file, and some only give a magnet link.
Optionally you can open the torrent file or magnet link directly in your torrent client (Deluge, QBittorrent or Transmission are supported for the moment).
