    :mailbox_with_mail: Simple, private file sharing. Mirror of https://gitlab.com/timvisee/send (by timvisee)

    I think it's the locale files, like this one: https://github.com/timvisee/send/blob/master/public/locales/...

    If you look at github/linguist, that's what recognizes languages in repos. It has this rule for FreeMarker: https://github.com/github/linguist/blob/32ec19c013a7f81ffaee...

    It seems a .ftl extension means FreeMarker to linguist, so those localizations show up as such.

  • snapdrop

    A Progressive Web App for local file sharing

    There's also https://snapdrop.net which seems extremely similar to sharedrop.io but has an additional useful feature of letting you send messages which I sometimes use to send links to devices that aren't logged into any service.

  • FilePizza

  • linguist

  • pcp

    📦 Command line peer-to-peer data transfer tool based on libp2p.

    I‘ve also built a file transfer tool (CLI) with emphasis on decentralization. It’s a fully decentralized p2p file transfer tool based on libp2p:

    https://github.com/dennis-tra/pcp

    I‘m currently trying to make it interoperable with https://share.ipfs.io/#/ which resembles the functionality of the posted tool.

  • OPS

  • Firefox Send

  • github1s

    One second to read GitHub code with VS Code.

  • croc

    Easily and securely send things from one computer to another :crocodile: :package:

  • webrtc-extensions

    A repository for "WebRTC 1.1+" features

    Thanks, this is great context! Especially the very different focus in these two projects explains a lot (lightweight control channel for A/V [1] vs. the entire reason for using WebRTC in all of these file transfer projects).

    Curious to see how the new implementation will play out for the browsers!

    ClearURLs is an add-on based on the new WebExtensions technology and will automatically remove tracking elements from URLs to help protect your privacy.
