Halite is an open-source BitTorrent client and is based on the excellent libtorrent library from Rasterbar Software. The remote control interface for Halite has been put on the back burner while the more pressing features that a bittorrent client needs.
Great little client! It does the job. Personally I have these comments: * I like to sort my downloads by Date Added. This is missing. Start and Finish time is present, but that's not really the same. Also, when sorting on these column, next time the client start, they entries are mixed up again... * A torrent can have several files, and quite often I don't need all of them. You can change the priority to 'Do Not Download', but I experienced a few times that these files are then downloaded the next time the client is started, even though they are still set to Do Not Download. * I guess it's quite normal that a part of an adjacent file is also downloaded, even though it was set to Do Not Download. What I dislike is that Halite then puts this partly downloaded file amongst the the other files without being able to distinct complete/incomplete files. Of course, in case of a zip for example, the decompression client will then tell you the file is corrupt/incomplete. Imo it's better to discard that file, or to make it visible in the filename/extension it's incomplete.
Almost perfect. The only thing that needs improvement is to stop using the Windows folder selection dialog, and use the standard file selection instead. It is much more usable (can copy/paste paths, uses the Places/Favorites Bar, etc)...
