  • peerjs

    Simple peer-to-peer with WebRTC.

    look at https://peerjs.com that this the project is using.

  • webwormhole

    Peer authenticated WebRTC.

  • syncthing-android

    Wrapper of syncthing for Android.

    I've got another one on topic of self-hosted file sharing:

    - FileBrowser running in Docker (https://filebrowser.org/features)

    - Syncthing running in another container (https://syncthing.net/)

    Syncthing keeps the files on your PC, Mac, BSD systems updated, and FileBrowser can point to the share and supply a convenient web UI. It works for me, it's kind of like a local Dropbox-lite.

  • FirebaseRTC

    Discontinued Codelab for building a WebRTC Video chat application using Firebase Cloudstore.

    WebRTC it is: https://webrtc.org/

    Yes only the network layer encryption. No file encryption as it will cost client browsers a lot in case of encrypting and then decrypting that at other end.

    I have written more about it here: https://dikshantraj2001.medium.com/nat-stun-turn-and-ice-466...

    Currently, I am using the public STUN servers only. If the IPs are not reachable, it would show an error and won't work as setting up TURN server would mean same as a third party server saving in file and serving it over network

  • wormhole-william

    End-to-end encrypted file transfer. A magic wormhole CLI and API in Go (golang).

    I like the wormhole-william[0] Go implementation of "Magic Wormhole" protocol on the CLI. There's a couple of compatible Android apps[1][2] in the F-Droid store and Rydmport[3] for your GUI loving friends.
