  • pwndrop

    Self-deployable file hosting service for red teamers, allowing to easily upload and share payloads over HTTP and WebDAV.

    Project mention: Alternative to pwndrop? | | 2022-11-07

    I came across a few weeks ago and really like it. It's really nice for doing (100% legal, don't @me) pentesting. I really like the hidden menu feature + the facade files. I went to the GitHub to take a look at the source code and noticed that it hasn't received a commit since 2020. Assuming that this project is no longer maintained, are there any other alternatives with red teaming in mind?

  • hyper-express

    High performance Node.js webserver with a simple-to-use API powered by uWebsockets.js under the hood.

    Project mention: Need help in understanding why we need classes in JS(node specifically). | | 2022-10-16

    Are classes absolutely needed in JS? No, not really. Are classes really nice and significantly improve the readability/flow of your code in some cases? Sure, an example could be a webserver I wrote:

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

    Project mention: Possibly stupid question, is java the right language for low latency and high throughput web servers? | | 2022-11-03

    If your team is familiar with Node, you can use it to write high performance servers that perform at almost the same level as Go or Java: It’d probably be worth learning how to benchmark and profile your current services too. It will require choosing your libraries carefully for high performance and being thoughtful about loops and allocations, but you would need to do that with Go and Java too.

  • http-server-upload

    A simple zero-configuration command-line http server for uploading files.

    Project mention: One-click file uploader WITHOUT link to share? (just place the file on the server) | | 2022-08-02
