Chihaya is built for developers looking to integrate BitTorrent into a preexisting production environment. Chihaya's pluggable architecture and middleware framework offers a simple and flexible integration point that abstracts the BitTorrent tracker protocols. The most common use case for Chihaya is enabling peer-to-peer cloud software deployments.
For more information read CONTRIBUTING.md.
