UDPT

UDPT is a UDP based torrent tracker which fully implements BEP-15.

This project was written in Rust, it is a complete rewrite of a previous C/C++ UDPT project (which is still currently available in the v2.1 tag of the repository).

Features

  • [X] UDP torrent tracking server
  • [X] In memory database
  • [X] Choice of Dynamic/Static/Private tracker modes
  • [X] Ability to block a torrent from being tracked
  • [X] HTTP REST API for management
  • [X] Logging
  • [ ] Windows Service or Linux/Unix daemon

Getting started

The easiest way is to get built binaries from Releases, but building from sources should be fairly easy as well:

git clone https://github.com/naim94a/udpt.git
cd udpt
cargo build --release

Why was UDPT rewritten in rust?

For a few reasons,

  1. Rust makes it harder to make mistakes than C/C++, It provides memory safety without runtime cost.
  2. Rust allows easier cross-platform development with it's powerful standard library.
  3. Integrated tests and benchmarks.

UDPT was originally developed for fun in 2012 by @naim94a.
