Subject: [Galene] Command-line client for Galene file transfer
Date: Sun, 30 Apr 2023 13:34:37 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)


Real Men (and Real Women) don't use webapps for transferring files.  They
set up their own ssh server on the VAX in their basement, and teach their
friends to use rsync.  (They also don't use webapps for conferencing, they
set up C News and teach their friends to use slrn.)

Sometimes, however, even we need something that's a little easier on the
brain.  That's why Galene implements peer-to-peer file transfer: just
click on a username in the web interface, and choose "send file".

Due to an unfortunate limitation in Chromium-based browsers[1], file
transfers of more than a couple of GB crash the browser tab.  I could
probably work around the Chromium bug, but it was both more fun and more
friendly to Read Men (and Real Women) to write a native command-line
client for file transfer.

Please do

    git clone

and read the included README:

For lazy people, binaries for Linux/AMD64, Linux/ARM64 and Windows are here:
