LuaTorrent3

Post by jsmorley »

* Updated for uTorrent 3.1.2 or better.
* Fixed an issue with the size of the background when you have more than five torrents going.

I wanted a uTorrent skin that would properly adjust the display based on adding / removing torrents, shutting down uTorrent.exe, etc. and the Lua scripting capability of Rainmeter was just what the doctor ordered...

First, you must have the latest 2.2 beta of Rainmeter from [link]

You must have uTorrent 3.1.2 or better installed. This skin does not support earlier versions. A previous version of LuaTorrent that supports uTorrent 2.x is here: [link]

In the skin folder (\Skins\LuaTorrent3.1) you will find some Help(x).jpg images that will help you set up uTorrent and the skin. You must enable WebUI in uTorrent and put the settings you used in the [Variables] section of the skin. You don't need to do anything with the .lua script, it is ready to go.

Make the required changes for User/Password/Port in LuaTorrent3.1.ini and refresh the skin.

The skin displays up to 5 torrents, with a tooltip to display the full name when truncated. The interface will adjust properly depending on how many torrents you have in uTorrent. If none, or if uTorrent.exe is not running, the interface will roll up to just a single bar and be out of your way. In fact, if uTorrent.exe is not running, the Lua script will disable all measures so the skin uses virtually zero resources until needed.

Reason: Edited to fix minor bug in parsing, and to add new "power on/off" functions for uTorrent

Well, I don't know. You need to have a recent uTorrent 3.x (I'm on 3.0 build 25505) and a recent Rainmeter 2.1 beta (at least r903), and since you already have uTorrent set up to work with my earlier version, that should be fine. What do you get in the measures in "About" in Rainmeter?

Can you connect in your browser using the url from the skin? Be sure to replace variables for id, password and port with the actual ones from uTorrent.

I'm guessing that blizzard of [stuff] in Label: is getting it. Do you by chance have a link to that torrent so I can investigate?
