Between two deadlines and Reglue stuff, I am gonna be slammed for the next couple of days. Does anyone here have time to play with this app for sending files to someone else's computer? Looks to be a simple file sharing program and I am putting together an article on lesser-known open source apps. I'd be happy to include your opinion and maybe how it might be improved...or how a GUI might aid as well.

- I got a couple of images. :) I'll give you the lowdown in a sec, Ken.Jan 14, 2014
- Looks like I got it. :)Jan 14, 2014
- Ken, I save the web page to my desktop, as droopy and then copied it over to the /bin dir I gave it executable permissions from within caja. I gave it .py as an extension, but that didn't seem to work, and since the instructions didn't say anything about an extension, I renamed it without the extension.
I then checked settings on my router, and set it up with droopy to be allowed on port 8000.Jan 14, 2014
- I also put a screenshot that I saved as avatar.png in the /upload dir.Jan 14, 2014
- $ droopy -m "Hi, it's me Nose. You can send me a file." -p ./avatar.png
Is all that I need to do now, to run droopy.
I've taken the terminal window down. If anyone else wants to get a hold of me, or test this, shout out.
Looks like I start work again tomorrow. (whoot, a paycheck!).Jan 14, 2014
- there's hippocms, to test it locally it's simply download, extract-run it/clicking on a "Start HippoCMS' button.. it's eazay! :p
If you're doing just file tranfers, you may be interesting seeing if there's an ssh/sftp plugin for firefox, and the user would just have to go to an sftp:// sort of url.. (there ought to be at least some webserver front-ends to sftp/ssh even without a webbrowser plugin)
^ reason why I point this out is because it's imho not good to demonstrate the habit of http over https! teheharhar :pJan 19, 2014
