Building v2.0.3 on MacOSX with Homebrew

Post by amar1729 »

Saw another post where a user built Deluge under MacPorts (viewtopic.php?f=13&t=55622) so I figured I'd make a Homebrew tap for it.

Link here: https://github.com/amar1729/homebrew-deluge-meta

This formula is called deluge-meta since I originally meant it to be a meta-package provided deluge's dependencies, as specified by the 2.0.3 docs (https://deluge.readthedocs.io/en/deluge ... stall.html). However, it turned into a full install of deluge and deluge-gtk.

This formula does NOT build a .app - instead, you can start deluge by calling deluge-gtk from the command line. This works for me on Mojave, but should work on Catalina as well.

Feel free to look over the formula before installing if you don't trust it (or fork it yourself and install it) - it's fairly straightforward.

Thanks for sharing! Any idea why the 2.0.3 gui is sluggish and laggy? This is the same for both the .app build and when I launch deluge-gtk.

No problem! I'm not sure - honestly, i'm not seeing the same problem, although I'm only using deluge GUI as a thin client to connect to my server.
