Mariner PyPI version Pipeline status Coverage report Downloads Black

Navigate torrents in CLI with Mariner. It offers a simple interface for streamlined experience. No more annoying ads and pop-up windows.

It is currently under heavy development, so expect breaking changes. Currently only works in Linux, but any contributions in this regard are welcome.

Mariner requires Python 3.6 or newer to run.

You can easily install Mariner using pip. This is the preferred method:
