Is there any alternatives to rTorrent? It has been feeling rather stale for the past 5 years or so.

@hund I use deluge on my server and it works pretty well; not really a torrent poweruser though so might be features it's missing compared to rTorrent.

@galen rTorrent is pretty basic, it features the things you expect, which is what I like. What I don't like is the fact that there's no colour support or support for custom keybindings. Using the arrow keys is tedious and the UI is pretty meh, so you need colours to see what is what.

I'll look into what you linked. I also found out about CTorrent, which is a CLI client. It sounds neat in theory, but we'll see how it works.
