    I can’t offer any advice since I’m in the same boat as far as search indexes go when I archive news and event footage before it’s deleted and friends ask for a copy, but https://github.com/ngosang/trackerslist is relevant so that you have a higher success rate with peers finding you (even though the zealots will say that you should only use DHT).

    I recently ran across a content sharing community that has potential - LBRY. It has much more than videos. I have just started experimenting with it and exploring. It combines elements of torrents, blockchain, and cryptocurrency. The users actually use it as users, not as the product.

  • GitHub repo Magnetico

    Autonomous (self-hosted) BitTorrent DHT search engine suite.

    Project mention: Cross-Database Queries in SQLite | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-02-21

    I'm using magnetico (https://github.com/boramalper/magnetico), a selfhosted bittorrent DHT scraper. After a few months of running I now have a little bit under 1M magnets in a ~3G database. SQLite is useful not just because I can query it with the full power of a relational database, but because I'm using its FTS capability for searching.

    If I had to install a typical database or some search engine I would never have used it. It is more than enough for what I'm using it for.
