Source for BiglyBT, a feature filled, open source, ad-free, bittorrent client. BiglyBT is forked from the original project and is being maintained by two of the original developers as well as members of the community. With over 15 years of development, there's a good chance we have the features you are looking for, as well as the decade old bugs you aren't looking for :)

Getting the basics to compile from source is pretty straightforward:
uis/src as project roots (source modules)
core/lib/* and one of the swt.jars at
swt-win64.jar on Windows
swt-cocoa-64.jar on OSX
swt-linux-64.jar on Linux (GTK)
uis module depend on
Core should not depend on
IntelliJ IDEA will do all these steps for you with its wizard.
If you wish IntelliJ IDEA to show MessageBundle strings instead of keys, as well as reduce the number of NPE warnings, you can attach the external annotations either by:
<module>/<module>.iml add to component:
<root url="file://$MODULE_DIR$/../external-annotations" />
External Annotations definitions are a WIP and not complete list of definitions.
Running is only few more steps:
Main class is
com.biglybt.ui.Main in module
Working Directory should be a new folder, since the app will write things to it. Put the
libOSXAccess.jnilib in there.
When a normal user is running the app, the working directory is where the jar, executable, and libraries (dll, so, jnilib) are.
If you want a separate config dir from the default one, use VM Option
-Dazureus.config.path=<some config path>
We build our installers using Install4j, multi-platform installer builder
Our binaries and installers up to and including v3.4 are signed with a digital signature of "Bigly Software". Releases after v3.4 will use an individual signing certificate and will bear the name "Arron Mogge (Open Source Developer)" denoting the identity of our team member responsible for signing.
