      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 updates must be downloaded manually (Appimage will soon support auto-updates).
      On OSX updates must be downloaded manually (because a god damn signing certificate cost $300 a year...)

    Hi, thanks.
    The autoUpdater and the configuration folder would require too much work to be made portable. Sorry about that.

    So, it doesn't download the torrent file? Uploading from scratch.

    Not at all. you just need to download the file in your real torrent client before you add it to JOAL.
    I didn't want joal to be a real client that download files before uploading it, it's just a simple upload faker.

    The mac app opens up, checks for updates and then goes to a white blank page where nothing happens. Tried opening it a few times at this point.

    I'll be using this because it really has a simple design, and I like those fonts, really. + it has a client file I can edit with any notepad software. But do you know how to get the peerid my own torrent client? Thanks.

    Do you only want the peer_id, or are you interested on writing/updating client files?

    Same question as @anon.

    If you want to set the peerid (like mRatio allow you to do with memory reader), you can't do that. JOAL was meant to be simple and will stay like that.

    If you want to build your own client files, well... that's a complex process to explain here, but if you got some time i can teach you that. It require times to create a file for a new torrent client client though.


    There is no memory reader because (first not all client can be memory readen) and mostly because the workflow for JOAL is not the same as the one for mRatio.
    mRatio memory reader is ment to be started along with your BitTorrent client.
    JOAL is ment to be used without the real BitTorrent client (even if you can use it along).

    The most common use case scenario for JOAL is:
    1) Download a file with your real BitTorrent client.
    2) Remove the file from your real BitTorrent client as soon as it's over.
    3) Close your real BitTorrent client.
    4) Start JOAL.
    5) Add the torrent to JOAL.
    6) Keep seeding.
    7) Don't forget to press "stop" before closing the app.

    JOAL is simple but everything comes at a cost. You won't be spotted by loosing yourself in configuration, but to be simple JOAL needs to get ride of somes features.
    I'm focusing myself on providing a simple user experience with up to dates client files.

    Hi ratiocu.

    The .jar file has not been officialy release yet because of the lack of documentation (even if you can download it here).
    It should be released in the next few days.
