XD uses Invisible Internet Protocol (I2P) for anonymizing and encrypting connections. Thus it requires user to run I2P router with SAM bridge enabled.
i2pd has SAM bridge enabled by default and is recommended, Java implementation will work too.
Getting started with XD
Once you have built or obtained a release, a webui will be enabled by default at http://127.0.0.1:1488/ .
Windows users are encouraged to use the webui if they can't use the command line tool.
Command Line (unix)
To autogenerate a new config and start:
$ ./XD torrents.ini
After started put torrent files into
./storage/downloads/ to start downloading.
To seed torrents put data files into
./storage/downloads/ first then add torrent files.
If you compiled with web ui it will be up at http://127.0.0.1:1488/ .
To use the command line tool you must symlink the
XD binary to
$ ln -s XD XD-cli
Adding torrents from seed file over i2p:
XD-cli add http://somesite.i2p/some/url/to/a/torrent.torrent
Listing active torrents:
To increase how many pieces to request in parallel use
set-piece-window command (may be removed in future):
XD-cli set-piece-window 10
Command Line (windows)

All commands are done in the same manner as in unix, except
/ needs escaping depending on what terminal in use.
TODO: add more docs for windows.
