Privateer - The Download / Stream Manager

Have you ever wanted to find a good file on the internet and watch it without downloading? No? Well, I did. And this was the result. WebTorrent is an awesome lib that allows you to stream torrents directly in your broswer. It's fast, lightweight and written in Javascript. I created Privateer because I had a use case scenario where I didn't want to archive the torrent and just wanted to watch it without having to download anything.

Using the search page, you can find file indexes (link to where file is on streaming or download server) or stream files directly or download them. Just specify index to file you want and click 'play' or 'download' accordingly.

How to write a kickass README

Arguably the single most important piece of documentation for any open source project is the README. A good README not only informs people what the project does and who it is for but also how they use and contribute to it.

If you write a README without sufficient explanation of what your project does or how people can use it then it pretty much defeats the purpose of being open source as other developers are less likely to engage with or contribute towards it.
