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:
- 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.
This script is designed to be run on a freshly installed VPS, it has been tested on Ubuntu 16.04 & 18.04 – All other distributions are unsupported at this time.
