Under the hood

ArrowDL is a standalone application, embedding its own web engine. That is, it aims to be free and independent, and not rely on any third-party Web Browser technology.

The internal web engine is currently:

  • Google Gumbo Parser, for the MinGW and GNU versions.

    Gumbo is a small pure-C HTML5 parser (but doesn't parse Javascript)

  • Chromium, for the MSVC version.

    Chromium is a powerful web engine (parses HTML+Javascript)

When we give an URL address to ArrowDL, ArrowDL downloads the page, parses the HTML page and collects the links.

Due to rapid evolution of web technology, ArrowDL is designed to implement new parsers or add existing ones if required.

Build with QtCreator on Windows

Assuming that the configured Kit in QtCreator is the auto-detected Desktop Qt 6.3.1 MinGW 64-bit (by default). (see Tools > Options > Kits)

Assuming that libtorrent is already compiled.

  1. File > Open File or Project.... Select ./CMakeLists.txt

  2. Go to page Debug. Click Configure

  3. Go to page Projects. Select Build > Parameters
    Set the values:

    • Boost_ROOT: "path/to/Boost"
    • LibtorrentRasterbar_ROOT: "path/to/libtorrent"

    Eventually, if OpenSSL path is not recognized, set explicitly:

    • OpenSSL_ROOT_DIR: "(path/to/Qt6)/Tools/OpenSSL/Win_x64"


    • CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX: Chose another install path.
  4. Click Run CMake.

  5. Go to page Editor. Build. Run.
