Clutch: A Web Interface for Transmission

Clutch IconNot too long ago, Transmission, the best torrent client for Mac OS X, hit version 1.0. While a bunch of new features were added into the mix, one of the large ones missing was a web interface for the client.

Windows (and Linux, if you know what you’re doing) torrent client, µTorrent, has had this as an optional feature for quite some time now. Now, thanks to Clutch, you can control your bittorrent downloads from just about anywhere.

Above is the Clutch UI; practically identical to Transmission interface, except for the obvious fact that, well, it runs in your browser. Aside from the icons being from the last version of Transmission, Clutch provides you with basically an exact copy of Transmission, in your browser. You can even add a torrent, right in the web interface, but you need the torrent file on hand; a mild inconvenience.

The Clutch app itself resides in your Mac’s menu bar, with a nice little house icon to represent itself. Clicking on it, you can access the Clutch’s preferences, which simply include changing the server port (ex. 9091, the default) and adding, removing, or changing authentication. In all, Clutch fills the void of a WebUI that Transmission has so sorely needed to thrust it to the position of best torrenting app for the Mac.

Clutch, a joint venture by Malcolm Jarvis, Dave Perrett, and Kendall Hopkins, is a free download.

    Clutch works great. I haven’t had any trouble running it.
    With Transmission/Clutch combo really works as the Mac equivalent of uTorrent.

    As I walked Moncler Jacken home one freezing day, I stumbled on a wallet someone had lost in the street. I picked it up and looked inside to find some identification so I could call the owner. But the wallet contained only three dollars and a crumpled letter that looked as if it had been in there for years.

    Fact is, much of the Other Shoes current crop of popular shoes makes podiatrists grimace. Foot deformities, including hammer toe, bunions, heel spurs, plantar Other Shoes fasciitis and even ankle, knee, hip and back problems, can arise from long-term wearing of bad Other Shoes footwear, experts say.
