Instant.io

Streaming file transfer over WebTorrent (torrents on the web)

travis javascript style guide

Download/upload files using the [WebTorrent](http://webtorrent.io) protocol (BitTorrent over WebRTC). This is a beta. Powered by [WebTorrent](http://webtorrent.io), the first torrent client that works in the browser without plugins. WebTorrent is powered by JavaScript and WebRTC. Supports Chrome, Firefox, Opera (desktop and Android). Run localStorage.debug = '*' in the console and refresh to get detailed log output. ## Install If you just want to do file transfer on your site, or fetch/seed files over WebTorrent, then there's no need to run a copy of instant.io on your own server. Just use the WebTorrent script directly. You can learn more at https://webtorrent.io. The client-side code that instant.io uses is [here](https://github.com/webtorrent/instant.io/blob/master/client/index.js). ### Run a copy of this site on your own server To get a clone of https://instant.io running on your own server, follow these instructions. Get the code: ``` git clone https://github.com/webtorrent/instant.io cd instant.io npm install ``` Modify the configuration options in [`config.js`](https://github.com/webtorrent/instant.io/blob/master/config.js) to set the IP/port you want the server to listen on. Copy [`secret/index-sample.js`](https://github.com/webtorrent/instant.io/blob/master/secret/index-sample.js) to `secret/index.js` and set the Twilio API key if you want a [NAT traversal service](https://www.twilio.com/stun-turn) (to help peers connect when behind a firewall). To start the server, run `npm start`. That should be it! ## Mirrors - http://instant.rom1504.fr/ - https://torrent.partidopirata.org/ - https://instant-io.glitch.me/ ## Tips 1. Create a shareable link by adding a torrent infohash or magnet link to the end of the URL. For example: `https://instant.io#INFO_HASH` or `https://instant.io/#MAGNET_LINK`. 2. You can add multiple torrents in the same browser window. ## License MIT. Copyright (c) [WebTorrent, LLC](https://webtorrent.io).
