Introducing WebDrop.Space, an easy way to transfer files & messages across all your devices seamlessly.

It works entirely on your browser with @WebTorrentApp, no installation needed ! Plus all devices under the same WiFi auto join the same room!

Made @MLHacks

WebDrop uses public @WebTorrentApp Trackers for discovering devices and sharing files too!

WebDrop.Space is just a static website and the transfer happens with the max speed peer to peer !

@subins2000 Nice one to share files on local network, why not host the repo on gitlab? #github is propreitary 👎

@pavi It's also available on GitLab : gitlab.com/subins2000/webdrop

The social activity on GitHub homepage is good for announcing new projects and letting people know. It's quite difficult to market indie projects, so creating a repo on GitHub announces it to everyone who follows me there. Plus there's the trending repos feature in GitHub. GitLab should have this social feature too to know what others are working on.

@subins2000 Idea is good. 😄 But I can't help but wonder:
1. are the "torrents" announced in the torrent trackers that you use in that site.
2. is it secure for sensitive files?
3. is the IP leaked?
4. the "room" is just 4 characters long - is it unique enough?

You might want to expand the FAQ a bit 😉

P.S.: There is also instant.io which nearly serves the same purpose. How does it compare?

Apologies if I am asking too many questions. Just being curious.

@ashwinvis Thanks for the questions. അപ്പോഴല്ലേ FAQ ശരിക്കും വികസിപ്പിക്കാൻ പറ്റൂ ;)

1. Yes

2. WebRTC communication is encrypted by default. But trackers can do MITM : github.com/subins2000/p2pt/iss

3. The peers won't be able to find each others' IPs.

4. The room ID is a quick hash of the IP address. Just looked it up, the collision rate is high : github.com/bevacqua/hash-sum/i

It'll work for now as there are less users, but have to be increased later !

instant.io also uses WebTorrent, so same result

സംഭവം പൊളിച്ചു..എളുപ്പത്തിൽ ഫയൽ മാറ്റാൻ പറ്റുന്നു.... (എന്റെ ഡാറ്റ നിങ്ങൾ അടിച്ചോണ്ടു പോയിട്ടില്ല എന്നാണ് വിശ്വാസം... 😉😉... )

@Kuryachan ഹഹ, ഇല്ലില്ല, ഞാൻ ഒന്നുമറിയുന്നില്ല, എല്ലാം പിയർ ടു പിയർ ! :D
