Trending packages?
Is there a script to see the trending packages with the data from [pkgstats](https://pkgstats.archlinux.de/) or some other way?

One is simulating reality, which will be possible in the future. Running many simulations of reality in parallel until AGI is made on one of this simulations. But it would be too easy for an AGI to find a bug and break free of the simulation.


Do all p2p protocols require a list of addresses to connect to more peers? Where to find them?
I'm using mldonkey which supports many p2p protocols. For the edonkey protocol it required a `server.met.gz` file to connect to more servers. Do I need something like that for the rest of the netwroks? overnet, kademlia, bittorrent, opennap, soulseek, gnutella, gnutella2, fasttrack, directconnect, fileTP.

libby: a simple CLI tool to quickly download books from libgen (Library Genesis)
libby scrapes Library Genesis with curl and pup and gives you a list of downloads with fzf. I made this because I felt the alternatives were too slow. Feel free to add issues/feature requests/PRs! The tool is available on the AUR as libby-git. [GitHub](https://github.com/carterprince/libby) [Source](https://github.com/carterprince/libby/blob/main/libby)

It’s a firefox extension with 1.7k users, I don’t think there is going to be an independent study just to make sure it’s safe. That said the project is open source so you can always read the code. The project has many contributors so for me it’s safe enough that I wouldn’t bother looking at the code.


Has anyone here vetted LibRedirect?

I don’t know what you mean.

I’ve found very useful the unify option to copy the settings for all instances.




It would need to be run before federating the instance then.


Wow that is so cool!

Not really a feature for the ui, more like a separate script. A migration script so that forum maintainers can migrate all posts to lemmy from phpBB.

A file named a.txt would go in a folder named A. A file called abc.txt would go in a folder C inside B inside A, assuming the folders A and B had more than the given number of files. It would be case insensitive.


Looking for software for Linux to sort files into letter named folders repeatedly until there are only a given number of files per folder
Let's say I have a really big number of files. I would like a program that created a folder for each letter in the alphabet, one for special symbols, one for numbers and placed the files into those folders based on the first letter of the file's title. It would repeat this process with the next letters of the file title until there were less than a given number of files in each folder. This would be useful to open the folders quicker, as opening a folder with too many files is often buggy or slow.

That’s true, I also follow a couple niche subreddits that don’t even exist here yet.


?? I just read this and then saw your post: Got another RISC-V board 😎. If you want more normies to join you should be posting cat pictures.

I still would need a way to figure out if the file corresponds to the torrent one. There may be different files with the same or similar name. If I don’t get the torrent one I can’t seed it.


Yes this is what I’ll have to end up doing, but then I can’t seed the completed torrent, and there’s probably more people who want to complete it.


I think it’s possible because BitComet, MLDonkey and Shareaza can download files from multiple networks at once even when they use different hashes, but I just don’t know how they manage to do it.


I’ve tried copy and pasting the magnet link from qBittorrent to aMule but it didn’t find anything. Have you tried this before? I just don’t think the edonkey network uses magnet links.


How can I find the equivalent emule hash for a bittorrent file?
I'm downloading a torrent with many files and it's been at 99.7% for a few months. I would like to know how to search on emule for the same files? I've thought maybe I can get the hash for a file in qbittorrent but I couldn't and even if I had it, there isn't a database with all the hashes for a file so I couldn't find the emule hash with the bittorrent one.

Download connection to http://peerates.net/servers.php was lost. How to get more connections on Envy?
On [Envy](https://github.com/GetEnvy/Envy) with the default settings and DC++ connection enabled, I've only got 2 G2 hubs, 3 G1 peers, and 1 DC++ hubs after 30 minutes. Only 6 neighbors in total. Is this normal? How do I get more connections? Specially on eDonkey where it hasn't achieved a single connection. And clicking on `Update eDonkey server list from the web. (.MET file)` gives a `Download connection to http://peerates.net/servers.php was lost` error. Does anyone know a way of editing this `.MET` file manually?

Where is the true succesor to eMule?
::: spoiler Where is the true succesor to eMule? Most of you will say that the succesor to eMule is BitTorrent as it is the most widely used P2P network today, but there are some things that BitTorrent lacks and eMule provides. The most notorious for me are the following: Built-in network-wide search Easy sharing Unique links Maybe you don't consider this features important, but the fact is that with the approach BitTorrent takes, we are highly dependent on central points that make the network vulnerable. With BitTorrent we depend on trackers and link listing websites to share content. A torrent client is useless on its own if we don't have a link listing site to get torrents or magnet-links from. On the other side, with the built-in search eMule provides, one can start downloading without the need for a website to take links from. Easy sharing is also very important, because it provides more peers to download files from. This is specially important on rare files, because with torrents the seeds to download a file can become scattered between different torrents and there can be 5 different torrents seeding the same data, yet they don't share peers. It is clear that one torrent with multiple seeds is preferred that multiple torrents with one seed each, for example. When there is one single way to identify a file on the network (like with ed2k hashlinks) even the less tech-savvy users are able to contribute. Sharing on eMule is as simple as dropping the file you want to share on your incoming folder (even if it is not the optimal way to do it). In BitTorrent, you must download an existing torrent file or magnet link, stop the download, replace the half downloaded files with the ones you already had downloaded, making sure that you use the same directory structure and filenames that are defined in the torrent, recheck the torrent and start it, all this in order to share files you had downloaded previously. Tell a noob user to do that to help you download some rare file... And now imagine that you have an entire drive full of sharing material, but the directory structure and filenames differ from the ones used on the torrents (because you like to keep things ordered in your hard drive). This scenario makes it impossible to share those files on the torrent network without creating brand new torrents, so you can't contribute and be one more seed on already existing torrents. Why not use eMule then? Because it's slow, inneficient, and there is practically only one client that is no longer actively developed. Searching for alternatives, the most similar program that has various clients and is multiplatform is Direct Connect, but it is not decentralized, and different servers don't communicate with each other, so peers for the same file are not shared globally and instead are scattered around different hubs Is there really no other program that works the way eMule does? Is there no true spiritual succesor to eMule nowadays? ::: - [Comparison of file-sharing applications](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_file-sharing_applications) - [Best p2p network to bulk share stuff?](https://reddit.com/r/Piracy/comments/ayo1hu/best_p2p_network_to_bulk_share_stuff/) - [List of P2P protocols](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_P2P_protocols) - [What are your favorite file-sharing applications?](https://lemmy.ml/post/335082) - [Alternatives to soulseek](https://reddit.com/r/musichoarder/comments/plt569/good_alternatives_to_soulseek/) - [How to search and download unpopular and old files on the internet](https://medium.com/@ValdikSS/how-to-search-and-download-unpopular-and-old-files-on-the-internet-e5947ef507ba)

Is there a way to contribute to the project for people who don't want to use github?
I haven't used github since they [anounced](https://lemmy.ml/post/257191) they would require two factor authentication for all contributors.

[SOLVED] Looking for open source library or software that implements a distributed voting system
I need this functionality for a project, but I don't know how to do it myself so I'm searching for an open source implementation. Edit: I've learned about the [Raft protocol](http://thesecretlivesofdata.com/raft/) which seems exactly what I needed.

It’s probably used only for mods so I don’t think anybody cares about the copyright. If it was used to make a game that would be another thing.


As of now they are. But if someone comes later they can look it up here: https://bitsearch.to/search?q=audiobooks&sort=size
