DelugePortable 1.3.3

Sorry, guys, for not being able to update to 1.3.2, but lately I've been extremely busy and DelugePortable was kinda my last problem. But at least now I'm back, so to speak.
Now, on with it.

Application: Deluge
Category: Internet

DelugePortable was first developed here, but that version is quite old (before the 1.* version of Deluge) and the developer has stopped working on it. So, after reading across the internet that other people are wanting a portable version, I decided to give it a shot.

The description taken from the deluge site:
Deluge is a full-featured BitTorrent client for Linux, OS X, Unix and Windows. It uses libtorrent in it's backend and features multiple user-interfaces including: GTK+, web and console. It has been designed using the client server model with a daemon process that handles all the bittorrent activity. The Deluge daemon is able to run on headless machines with the user-interfaces being able to connect remotely from any platform.

Deluge features a rich plugin collection; in fact, most of Deluge's functionality is available in the form of plugins.

Deluge was created with the intention of being lightweight and unobtrusive. It is our belief that downloading shouldn't be the primary task on your computer and therefore shouldn't monopolize system resources.

This is my (very) fist try of making a portable version for Deluge. I managed to 'portabilitize' the 1.2.1 version, as it's the last version of Deluge that currently runs on my system.
The portable version looks solid from my end, meaning that all the data that Deluge usually stores on the hdd is collected and stored in the 'Data\deluge' folder from the PortableDeluge structure.
Also, by setting PortableDeluge.exe as your default torrent client, you can open torrents by double clicking the .torrent file.

DelugePortable 1.2.1 was the first try. It can still be downloaded from the link at the bottom of the post.

Update! DelugePortable 1.3.3
A new version of Deluge was released, and with it a new portable version is now released. The application can be downloaded from here (12.72 MB to download / ~33 MB after install).
Changelog:

  • You can get the complete changelog from here
    Changes in the portable app:

  • Because it seems that Deluge doesn't use *.cmd files anymore, neither the portable Deluge does. So this means that there shouldn't any more flashing command prompt windows on your desktop when starting or adding torrents
  • Also, after upgrading, if the program does not start, please go to %appdata% and you'll see there a deluge folder with a shortcut sign on it. Delete it and run DelugePortable.exe again. It should work fine (I'm just saying this as a precaution, nothing more).

Previous versions (DelugePortable 1.2.1, 1.2.3, 1.3.0 and 1.3.1) can be downloaded from the links below:

  • DelugePortable 1.3.1
  • DelugePortable 1.3.0
  • DelugePortable 1.2.3
  • DelugePortable 1.2.1
  • ENJOY!

    1. There's nothing against the rules in this post, although the post does not fit our format.

    2. Do not encourage users to set this as their default torrent client, as it can cause problems if used from a USB drive.

    3. There was already a portable version of this here, however the developer has left. I don't know if it's necessary, but I tend to link to past versions and mention that I've taken them over.

    I edited my post with the

    I edited my post with the link to the 0.5.8.7 version... The thing is I knew about that version (that was one thing that made me think to try and create an up-to-date portable version of Delue), but in the process of posting here, it kinda slipped my mind. Thanks for the heads up:).

    Request

    Can you host the files on mediafire instead of Rapidshare? Mediafire doesn't have the wait times, supports download accelerators and I haven't come across a network blocking access to it yet.

    Thanks Smiling

    Download Link is broken!

    Could you add that file to MediaFire.com or Sourceforge.net or other sites to work?

    Links now point to mediafire:-). No more rapidshare.

    It works. Thanks too much!

    Not Tempted to Try Yet

    I wouldn't call 44MB lightweight, but I suppose diskspace is cheap and if it doesn't take 44MB of memory to run then that's ok.

    About the lightweightness

    When people refer to a program as being lightweight, they mean that it does not use much memory (and I'm referring to the RAM memory, not the HDD) or a lot of the CPU.

    Yes, I get that

    I understand that but in general the more diskspace a program takes up the more memory it is likely to take up.

    I compare the 40+MEG this installed app takes up with the couple of meg that MuTorrent takes up and I do question whether the memory usage would be comparable. Perhaps to be completely fair I should run some tests, but I'm always suspicious of apps that seem needlessly large.

    A classic example of this would be the 20+Meg for Adobe's Acrobat Reader... 20MB for a PDF viewer... seriously?! Shocked I think I'll stick with FoxIt, or better yet Sumatra.

    I admit that I'm judging a book by it's cover but such is life, there are so many choices when it comes to apps, that I couldn't possibly ever test them all so I have to come up with some triage system for deciding which ones are right for me.

    I'm not telling people to not use this app, just voicing my opinion and I'm open to someone telling me that I'm completely wrong and should go sit quietly in the corner.

    Mmmm... you do know that when

    Mmmm... you do know that when uTorrent's downloading/uploading, the RAM usage goes to somewhere about 60-70 MB, maybe more, right? Or, if you open with Foxit more than 3 or 4 pdf files, the amount of RAM that the program uses goes somewhere about 80-100 MB? I'm not arguing with you here, if that's what you think, I'm just saying that the in general part is wrong. The amount of RAM that an application's using has quite little to do with the size it has. It's more related to what jobs executes, in background or not, on how many threads it operates and other things like that.
    And, about the test, do run them... you'll the that with Deluge (at least for me) your HDD won't be so 'stressed' when reaching 8-11 MB/s speeds, compared to uTorrent.
