Overview

A lobber storage node is essentially a standard BitTorrent client with a very thin layer used to receive notification about new and modified torrents. A lobber storage node is provided as a twisted plugin and is installed from the python package index. Currently the twisted plugin works with transmission - a popular, cross-platform BitTorrent client. Other BT clients may be supported in the future. Anchorinstallubuntuinstallubuntu

Installing on Ubuntu

The examples below assume a debian/ubuntu and OS X environment. If you're running another unix-like or windows OS your milage may vary. Our goal is for lobber to run on a multitude of environments and operating systems. Please provide us with patches!
