Template:Infobox Software MonoTorrent is a cross-platform library implementing the BitTorrent protocol. It is based on the Mono implementation of the .NET Framework. As a result, MonoTorrent can be compiled and executed on every major operating system available today. There has also been work completed recently which allows the library to operate on the Compact .NET framework. This now allows the library to run on any platform supporting the compact framework, such as smart phones.

The aim of this library is not to provide a rich graphical interface for users to interact with, but rather to provide a rich programming API to allow a developer to easily create a GUI using the library without having to worry about reinventing the wheel by implementing the BitTorrent specification themselves.

As a result this should allow developers to easily embed the library into a wide variety of applications with ease.

The library was initially developed under the 2006 Google Summer of Code. It now resides in the public SVN for Mono.

Monsoon, a GTKSharp client based on MonoTorrent, is being developed alongside the library and has been included in openSUSE 11.0.[1]
