  • GitHub repo transfer.sh

    Easy and fast file sharing from the command-line.

    Since this is conspicuously lacking among other threads here, allow me to thank the creators and maintainers for a service invaluable to those of us who are grateful for the ability to share files without installing new software, and who mightn't need e2e protection for it (though as the examples show, this is possible, again without installing additional software).

    Thank you! :)

  • GitHub repo pcopy

    pcopy is a temporary file host, nopaste and clipboard across machines. It can be used from the Web UI, via a CLI or without a client by using curl.

    Since we're listing alternatives, here's the one I made: https://nopaste.net -- It's open source and available on https://github.com/binwiederhier/pcopy

    curl usage is available via: "curl nopaste.net".

  • GitHub repo magic-wormhole

    get things from one computer to another, safely

    This is exactly the use case for Magic Wormhole, which is what the cool kids use to transfer files:

    https://github.com/magic-wormhole/magic-wormhole

    Magic Wormhole uses an end-to-end PAKE to create an encrypted transport between two points in the Internet, using a rendezvous server.

    It doesn't store files, which is almost never what you want; it's not a way to send a file and have 10 or 100 people download it. But it's probably the best way to get a file through a bunch of arbitrary network controls, NATs, &c to a desired destination. There's a Go implementation as well:

    ... which is what I use most of the time. If you haven't played with it, I highly recommend it.
