Most of their code is written in JavaScript (JS). There are several tutorials/books available that will help you understand how JS works. After you get a good grasp of JS basics, have a look at Popcorn time's official Github repository. You will find the source code of their apps there. You can analyze them line by line or experiment by modifying the code. You can even make your own version of the apps (fork), but you must respect the license original authors used.

It's only a BT client, isn't it? I'm not sure what's illegal about BT itself without any context. :confused:

Nothing illegal about it as far as I know. What you may do with it it's another deal.
