Search. Select. Stream.

magnet is a command-line torrent search scraper for magnet links. It can pass a selected magnet (and additional parameters) through to peerflix to start downloading (and streaming) the search result automatically. Or you could pipe the output from magnet into your preferred torrent utility!

This utility gets search results and magnet links from thepiratebay.org. The responsibility lies upon the user to not download malicious, false or illegal material using this tool.

The search isn't limited to just video, of course!
