Announcing Trireme for Deluge, the Deluge thin client for Android

Post by teal77 »

Hello everyone,
I made an Android app which acts as thin client for a remote Deluge daemon.
The app it self is open sourced under GPLv3 https://github.com/teal77/trireme.

I'd like to thank,
the developers of the Deluge project for the Deluge project.
the developers of Transdroid for inspiration.

Also, some of you may have seen the announcement I made in IRC a couple of weeks ago and downloaded the app from the Play Store. Google has since removed the app from the Play Store and there will be no more updates for that version. If you are already using the Play Store version, you will have to uninstall that because it will not be compatible with the Github versions. Sorry for the inconvenience, also thank you all who supported the app during it's brief life in the Play Store.

No reason given. Well the emails say that its due to "multiple prior violations" with an "associated" account. I tried to explain to them that I had never used play store before and that this was my first ever app, but they wouldn't listen or give me any other information.

I'm working on getting the app listed on F-Droid.

Updated the app with some bug fixes.
  • Fix disconnected client not reconnecting properly even after connection has been restored.
  • Fix list inconsistency caused by large number of RPC events. eg: When the whole list is paused/resumed.
  • Add banner in home screen which indicates connection issues.

App is now up on F-Droid. https://f-droid.org/packages/org.deluge.trireme/

F-Droid is an app store for FOSS android apps. All apps in there are built from source by the F-Droid community. If you are not using it already, I highly recommend it. https://f-droid.org/

@ teal77

Thanks for making this. I spent hours trying to get transmission to work. It the most popular torrent application for Ubuntu, but I think It is very confusing because there seems to be like 3 different configuration files

This is the last step I needed to get everything setup the way I wanted.

You are my hero, I've been waiting for someone to build an android thin client using the proper (non-web) APIs. Good work!
