Usage

The param torrentId can be a webtorrent file or magnet link, for more info check out parse-torrent.

webtorrentHealth(torrentId [, opts], callback)
var webtorrentHealth = require('webtorrent-health')
var magnet = 'magnet:?xt=urn:btih:6a9759bffd5c0af65319979fb7832189f4f3c35d&dn=sintel.mp4&tr=wss%3A%2F%2Ftracker.btorrent.xyz&tr=wss%3A%2F%2Ftracker.fastcast.nz&tr=wss%3A%2F%2Ftracker.openwebtorrent.com'

webtorrentHealth(magnet, function (err, data) {
  if (err) return console.error(err)

  console.log('average number of seeders: ' + data.seeds)
  console.log('average number of leechers: ' + data.peers)
  console.log('ratio: ', +(Math.round((data.peers > 0 ? data.seeds / data.peers : data.seeds) +'e+2') + 'e-2'))
})

You can also use Promises/A+:

var webtorrentHealth = require('webtorrent-health')
var magnet = 'magnet:?xt=urn:btih:6a9759bffd5c0af65319979fb7832189f4f3c35d&dn=sintel.mp4&tr=wss%3A%2F%2Ftracker.btorrent.xyz&tr=wss%3A%2F%2Ftracker.fastcast.nz&tr=wss%3A%2F%2Ftracker.openwebtorrent.com'

webtorrentHealth(magnet).then(function (data) {
  console.log('average number of seeders: ' + data.seeds)
  console.log('average number of leechers: ' + data.peers)
  console.log('ratio: ', +(Math.round((data.peers > 0 ? data.seeds / data.peers : data.seeds) +'e+2') + 'e-2'))
}).catch(console.error.bind(console))

If you couldn't scrape any of the trackers you will not get any errors, but the returned data will look like this:

{
  seeds: 0,
  peers: 0,
  extra: [...]
}

The attribute extra is an Array of Objects, that contains more info about the each tracker. Example:

[
  {
    tracker: 'wss://tracker.openwebtorrent.com',
    seeds: 561,
    peers: 12967,
    downloads: 561,
    response_time: 229
  },
  {
    tracker: 'wss://tracker.btorrent.xyz',
    seeds: 601,
    peers: 19119,
    downloads: 601,
    response_time: 705
  },
  {
    tracker: 'wss://tracker.badtracker.com',
    error: 'connection error to wss://tracker.badtracker.com'
  }
]
