    A homebrew port of Transmission 2.94 for Nintendo Switch with a very basic console UI. Torrents can be added/managed by a web browser remotely, or with something like Transdroid.

    [​IMG]
    Install
    Extract the latest release zip to the /switch folder on your sdcard. Skip the settings.json if you don't want to revert to the release defaults.

    exFAT support
    This was tested only with the FAT32 file-system. Using exFAT could lead to DATA CORRUPTION, especially if nxTransmission crashes.

    FAT32 limit
    FAT32 has a file size limit of 4GB, files bigger than this limit are split automatically to a folder matching the original file name, and the file concatenation attribute is applied to the folder when the torrent fully completes.

    GitHub
    https://github.com/t-flo/nxTransmission

    Screenshot
    The web UI looks like in a browser just like for other Transmission versions.

    This is in early stage, comments, feedback about download speed are welcome.
    So far this was only tested on one device, running 9.0.1 with Atmosphere 0.9.4.

    You can open up a web browser to the RPC URL. See applet/libapplets/web in switch-examples.

    If you are talking about the web interface, it is the same as other versions of Transmission.

    I also recommend the Transdroid remote controller app, available on Android. Open source, GPL3. In case if you want to use your phone to manage your torrents.

    Created new release with possibility to download torrents sequentially. It might help with the speed of writing the sdcard, testing is needed to confirm this.

    cool to see, but i personally wouldn't really want to leave my switch on just to download things.
    but for strange situations and emergencies, i am sure it can be useful!
    thanks for the work

    Thanks! Is .nsz file format splitting supported in FAT32, or .nsp only ?..

    Actually this file splitting works for any file, it is not file format specific. I have tried .xci and .nsp so far.

    New release, 0.2.3.
    Link.
    Replaces non ASCII characters in filenames, and udp trackers are working.

    Great work nice idea but I don’t understand why have a torrent client on your switch? What’s the benefit of that does it download example a mkv video file so you can use with pplay I’m not sure how it would even work. If it’s a client that downloads files on to your sd card and you have to transfer to another device I don’t see the point, not been negative just realistic.

    Another one of those: “if I don’t see any use for this project, obviously no one else will.” posts. This project is in development and will lead to several enhancements for home-brew projects.

    Where did they state, that there is no use for this project? They just state, that they can't think of a use case. You're just projecting hostility into the post.

    Can be used to get files to your switch, whatever your reasons are. Similarly to an ftp server. And sure, for example you can play an mkv file you downloaded with it. Even if it is bigger than 4GB and you have fat32, as it will be split automatically.:)

    I am watching its progress, even though I cannot use it due to restrictive licensing. But if he can do a nice POC, I might port a better licensed project into tinfoil: https://github.com/picotorrent/picotorrent/blob/master/LICENSE
