Downpour - web-based BitTorrent client
Downpour is a web-based BitTorrent client built with media centers in mind. It supports auto-downloading from RSS feeds and automatic importing and renaming of downloads into a media library, making it ideal for use on a home media server.

I should add it only runs on Linux at the moment, though Windows support is on the way.

This looks really interesting, but what's the relationship between this project and Deluge? The name and logo seem quite similar.

(I run Deluge currently, and if this has the same featureset plus that nice-looking web ui I'm installing it on my server as soon as I get home, maybe sooner.)

No relationship, though I believe Deluge uses the same backend library (libtorrent).

Will it compile under OSX?

I haven't tried, but I don't see why not - all of those python libraries are available on OSX.

The web interface on the last release has a pretty bad CPU usage problem right now - try the SVN snapshot if you try to install it.

New release, 0.2. Get it while it's hot. Big performance improvements, lots of little bug fixes, and added the ability to bind to a specific network interface under Linux (hello Swedish VPN!)

Also, much easier to install.
