Download Torrent Editor API v0.1 beta

The API that powers has been provided to allow other torrent enthusiasts to develop their own tools. Several examples are provided to demonstrate how to use the API. The API requires PHP 5 and should work on any operating system. Here are the basic steps to get up and running:

  1. Download and extract the API.
  2. Open the command prompt.
  3. Type "php -v" and press enter. If PHP is configured correctly you should see something like "PHP 5.2.1 (cgi) (built: Jul 8 2008 15:41:58)".
    • If you see command not found you need to put PHP in your path. Try "PATH=C:\php" or "PATH=C:\php\bin".
    • If you see PHP 4.x.x you need to ugrade to PHP 5.
  4. Change to the directory where you extraced the API.
  5. Run one of the examples by typing "php [example_name].php".
  6. Make your own tool by copying the example that is most similar to what you would like to do and modify it as nessicary.
  7. Come to on for help.

The only documentiation available is in the example scripts. We need someone who would like to make some simple documentation or a HOWTO.

If you would like to improve the API or added functionality that you think would be useful to others come to our IRC channel.

If you use the API in your own project we'd love to know about it. Stop by our IRC channel or the ShoutBox.
