A tutorial video about downloading
We recommend using the Transmission torrent client, which supports all major operating systems. You can download it from https://www.transmissionbt.com/.
From the command line
We recommend aria2c. Specify a torrent URL or the magnet link to download. Here is an example usage:
aria2c --seed-time=0 --max-overall-download-limit=10M --file-allocation=none https://academictorrents.com/download/c5af268ec55cf2d3b439e7311ad43101ba8322eb.torrent
--seed-ratio=0Stop after downloading
--file-allocation=noneStart downloading right away instead of allocating the file on disk
--max-overall-download-limit=10MLimit the download speed to prevent high speeds from breaking things
As an alternative we also provide a pure python client at-python which can be installed as follows:
$ pip install academictorrents
$ at-get c5af268ec55cf2d3b439e7311ad43101ba8322eb
This repository is an implementation of the BitTorrent protocol written in Python and downloadable as a pip module.
You can download datasets from AcademicTorrents.com in two lines of code:
import academictorrents as at
path_of_dataset = at.get("323a0048d87ca79b68f12a6350a57776b6a3b7fb") # Download mnist dataset
