Description : carml is a command-line tool to query and control a running Tor
You can do things like:
list and remove streams and circuits;
monitor stream, circuit and address-map events;
watch for any Tor event and print it (or many) out;
run any Tor control-protocol command;
pipe through common Unix tools like grep, less, cut, etcetera;
download TBB through Tor, with pinned certs and signature checking;
...even spit out and run xplanet configs (with router/circuit markers)!
It is written in Python and uses Tor's control-port via the txtorcon library.
- why is this package useful/relevant?
helps monitoring tor
- if there are other packages providing similar functionality?
no, there's txtorcon, which this package depends on
- how do you plan to maintain it? inside a packaging team?
