    You should take a look at WebRTC. I can't recommend a resource specific to Flask, but this article might be helpful.
  • Rust Time Communication.

    With the strike in session, I had a lot of time on my hands to learn what I needed to learn, and things went on smoothly till I hit a brick wall. I couldn’t find a Web RTC implementation in Rust. Web RTC is a framework that allows browsers and web-based applications to communicate in real-time. It is important to know that while Rust has made a lot of waves in recent times, it is still relatively new compared to other languages and development technology. There were still things that had not fully been abstracted to the level where regular developers could easily access the functionalities without having a deep understanding of how they worked. Web RTC was one of them. Now that I think of it, I found one, but it was basically just C embedded in Rust. While that sort of worked, It wasn’t what I wanted. I searched around a bit more, then I found someone, Rainliu working on a Web RTC implementation in Rust. It was in its early stages though, in fact, all that had been done was a collated list of frameworks that would allow Web RTC to work in Rust. I decided to help out, or at least try to help. There I was, a few weeks into learning Rust, and I wanted to help build a library.

    You’re looking for webRTC, FTP is just File Transfer Protocol. You are going to have to setup a TURN server for your webRTC app if this is going further then your LAN and a learning project. You could also look at websockets(central server), VoIP.
