In this tutorial, you will learn how to install and access Deluge through your web browser.
The wikipedia definition of Deluge says
“Deluge is a BitTorrent client written in Python. Deluge is cross-platform, using a front and back end architecture where libtorrent, a software library written in C++ which provides the application’s networking logic, is connected to one of various front ends (including a text console, a Web interface, and a graphical desktop interface using GTK+) through the project’s own Python bindings.”
Even if you are new to Linux, it doesn’t matter as we have tried to cover almost every step in this tutorial. If you get stuck somewhere then you can ask it in the comments section.
