BitTorrent – Deluge WebUI Install Script

Deluge is a BitTorrent client written in python based on libtorrent. Deluge is my favorite  BitTorrent client because it’s got some great features like:

09/08/16 – Updated for Deluge 1.3.13 – Tested on  Debian 8/Ubuntu 16.04

  • It’s Fast!
  • Full Encryption Support
  • Cross-Platform Support
  • Thin Client Mode
  • Great Web-UI
  • Plugin System

Not only have I found Deluge to be faster than many of the other BitTorrent clients that I have tried but, it’s also simple to setup and reasonably lightweight in terms of resources. Packaged versions of Deluge can be a bit old and not up to snuff, so I’ve written a  simple bash script that will automatically install the latest version of Deluge from it’s source.  The entire process, on a freshly installed VPS, takes approximately 5 minutes.
