+    <h1>TorStatus</h1>
14
+
15
+    <p>The TorStatus project family consists of websites and clients
16
+    listing currently running Tor relays and bridges and details about
17
+    them.  There are currently two TorStatus applications available:</p>
18
+    <ul>
19
+    <li><a href="https://atlas.torproject.org/">Atlas</a> is a web
20
+    application to discover Tor relays and bridges. It provides useful
21
+    information on how relays are configured along with graphics about
22
+    their past.</li>
23
+    <li><a href="https://code.google.com/p/moniono/">mOnionO</a> is an
24
+    Android app that lets you add your relays or bridges to your favorites
25
+    list and keeps you always informed whether they are running or
26
+    not.</li>
27
+    </ul>
28
+
29
+    <h2>Developing TorStatus applications</h2>
30
+
31
+    <p>The project pages of the TorStatus applications listed above have
32
+    further information for contacting the authors and contributing ideas
33
+    or code.  The authors will be happy to hear your thoughts!</p>
34
+
35
+    <p>You don't find your favorite TorStatus application above?  Want to
36
+    implement your own and tell us to add it to the list?  The TorStatus
37
+    applications above are backed by a web-based protocol, called
38
+    <a href="http://onionoo.torproject.org/">Onionoo</a>, which
39
+    facilitates developing new applications displaying Tor status
40
+    information.  Here are a few ideas for new TorStatus applications:</p>
41
+    <ul>
42
+    <li>Tor controller extension: Extend
43
+    <a href="<page projects/vidalia>">Vidalia</a> and/or
44
+    <a href="<page projects/arm>">arm</a> to look up details for the bridge
45
+    that the user is running and display what pool the bridge is contained
46
+    in.</li>
47
+    <li>Social network site plugin: Add a plugin to the social network
48
+    site of your choice to show your friends what Tor relays and bridges
49
+    you're running and how that helps users around the world.</li>
50
+    <li>Desktop tray icon: Write a tray icon for your favorite desktop
51
+    environment that tells you when your relay or bridge is down and that
52
+    displays some basic usage statistics.</li>
53
+    <li>E-mail notification service: Improve our e-mail notification
54
+    service <a href="https://weather.torproject.org/">Weather</a> by
55
+    implementing its own relay search or extending it to report when a
56
+    bridge drops off the network.</li>
57
+    <li>Command-line tool: Implement a command-line tool that quickly
58
+    searches a relay or bridge and prints out some status information to
59
+    help debug problems.</li>
60
+    <li>(Insert your idea here.)</li>
61
+    </ul>
62
+
63
+    <p>Want to help with developing the Onionoo server that provides
64
+    TorStatus data, or want to run your own Onionoo server instance?  The
65
+    Onionoo server is written in Java with a tiny portion of Java
66
+    Servlets.  Instructions for setting up the Onionoo server to fetch the
67
+    required data from the Tor servers is described in the INSTALL file in
68
+    the sources.  For more details see the
69
+    <a href="https://gitweb.torproject.org/onionoo.git">source code</a> and
70
+    <a href="https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/query?status=!closed&component=Onionoo">issue
71
+    tracker</a>.</p>

75
+    <p>TorStatus is the name of a nowadays
76
+    <a href="https://svn.torproject.org/svn/torstatus/trunk/">unmaintained</a>
77
+    website that displays Tor relay information similar to
78
+    <a href="http://atlas.torproject.org/">Atlas</a>.  There are still a
79
+    few <a href="http://torstatus.all.de/">TorStatus websites</a>
80
+    running.</p>
81
+
82
+    <p>There's another project from summer 2011 called TorStatus which is
83
+    a <a href="https://gitweb.torproject.org/torstatus.git">rewrite</a> of
84
+    the original TorStatus in Python/Django.  Unfortunately, it's also
85
+    unmaintained.</p>
86
+
87
+    <p>Finally, there's the
88
+    <a href="https://metrics.torproject.org/consensus-health.html">consensus-health
89
+    page</a> which has the primary purpose of indicating problems with
90
+    creating a network status consensus.  As a side-effect this page lists
91
+    all currently running relays and how the directory authorities voted
92
+    on them.</p>
