rTorrent – a Bittorrent client which uses ncurses and is ideal for use with tmux, screen or dtach.
Starting from version 0.9.7+ it has a built-in daemon mode disabling the user interface, so you can only control it via XMLRPC. It supports saving of sessions, allows the user to add/remove torrents, and scanning of directories for torrent files to seed and/or download, and much more.
The project founder is Jari Sundell.
