      What is Joal-Desktop
      Joal-Dekstop is somehow a ratio master, the "desktop" version works though a graphical user interface (pictures available at the bottom of this post).
      I initially developped JOAL because i was bored of the .NET framework requirement and i wanted to have a ratio-faker that could work on every OS.



      How JOAL compares with other tools
      JOAL RatioMaster Plus mRatio
      OS Windows / Linux / Mac Windows Windows
      Multi-torrent Yes Yes Yes
      Configuration Simple as hell Hard Simple
      Memory reader No Yes Yes
      App updates Automatic on Windows Download needed Download needed
      Clients file updates Automatic Download needed Download needed
      Proxy compliant No Yes Yes
      Multiple language No Yes Yes
      Headless server app Yes No No

      Don't get me wrong, i'm not saying JOAL is better than other tools around here. It does not cover the same needs. JOAL is focused in providing a simple user experience with multi-os support. It will fit your need if you want to get started with cheating your ratio or if get yourself lost in configuring other tools, but if you are an advanced user (or a developper) you'll find much more configuration opportunities in mRatio or RatioMaster.


      How to use it safely
      1. Start the app.
      2. Wait for updates to be checked.
      3. Change the configuration (if needed).
      4. Drag and drop torrents.
      5. Voila!
      6. Click on "stop" before closing the app.

      Some tips you need to know to use joal properly:
      Do not use JOAL when your real torrent client is started.
      Try not to froget to press the "STOP" button before closing the app.
      Always download torrents in your regular client before adding them into JOAL.


      Where do i download it
      Download it here

      On Windows app is auto-updated when you start it.
      On Linux app is auto-updated when you start it.
      On OSX updates must be downloaded manually (because a god damn signing certificate cost $300 a year...)

    I'd love that, I only need to know how the base peerID for torrent clients. Otherwise, I looked in the client file's code and seems easy to change.

    "pattern": "-base PeerID-[A-Za-z0-9_~\\(\\)\\!\\.\\*-]{12}",

    First, capture enough announces made by that client to be able to find a pattern.

    http://www.sb-innovation.de/showthread.php?t=32021
    http://www.sb-innovation.de/showthread.php?t=33436

    Secondly, you need to be acquainted with regular expressions. Let's have a look at the peer_id pattern for Deluge 1.3.15:

    -DE13F0-[A-Za-z0-9_~\(\)\!\.\*-]{12}

    This means: -DE13F0- followed by 12 characters, each of which can be any of A to Z, a to z, 0 to 9, or _ ~ ( ) ! . * -

    The one for uTorrent 3.5.0 Build 43916 is more complicated:

    -UT3500-(\u008c\u00ab)[\u0001-\u00ff]{10}

    This means: -UT3500-, followed by bytes 0x8C and 0xAB, and then 10 bytes each of which can be anywhere from 0x01 to 0xFF.

    Hi all :)

    @All
    Version 1.0.1 has been released.
    If you are on Windows just restart JoalDesktop to update it.
    If you are on Linux or Mac download it here.
    - The Linux app has been fixed and is now working.
    - Fix somes typos in the settings page.
    - Fix the app name not being correct.

    @Zora: Sure :) first download the freshly released 1.0.1 from https://github.com/anthonyraymond/jo...eleases/latest.
    Install it again, then open a terminal and type: /Applications/JoalDesktop (it should work, if it does not tell me i'll reach you by MP).


    @adamindibi: The more i read your question the more i ask myself what you want.
    Do you want to create a client file for a not supported BitTorrent client? (in this case anon's answer is a good start, when you'll be familiar with basic regex and network sniffing i'll be able to tell you more).
    Or do you want to modify an existing client file (because you should not do that at all !).

    @ratiocu The joal repository now had documentation (not docket yet but...) you can check it out if you want

    I'm building a development build just for you then ^^ I'll send you a mega.co.nz link by MP as soon it's available. It takes some times though, you won't get it until tomorrow.

    I wanted to update my clients by myself, thanks to Anon, I now know how to get the peerid of torrent client. (I used the smartsniff guide, other one seemed too sophisticated)

    Why shouldn't I modify an existing client file? Isn't the only things I have to do is just change the base peerid and user agent?

    The client provider are what they have to be, modifying might result in you being caught. And keep in mind that each client you manually put in the desktop version of joal will be deleted when the next update will be downloaded.

    Changing the base peerid is enought most of the time to update a client file to a new version (not all the time) but you can't just copy paste a client file to create a new client, each parameter in the client files has a meaning and is here for a good reason. If you take a look at all client files you'll see that they all are differents.
    If i were you i'll just stick to the official client files. I may add more clients if you need some more that are currently not supported.

    Features
    • Removed useless links in menu bar.
    • Added an about window.
    • Updates a lot of joal-desktop deps to last version.

    Thanks for your support

    On the desktop version you don't need to install java. The proper version will be downloaded and installled in joal config folder.
    Looking forward for your email :)

    Version 1.0.4 has been released.
    If you are on Windows just restart JoalDesktop to update it.
    If you are on Linux or Mac download it here.

    Changes
    • GUI is now reset on disconnection.
    • Reduce torrent bar size.
    • Add a warning in history tab to instruct this is still under development.
    • Adding torrent file will take a bit longuer than before, but will reduce CPU overhead.
    • Made the "Change connection settings" more visible when not connected.
