python -mooch (sharing files on a LAN made kinda easy)

Project description

Sharing files on a local network made kinda easy.

Share files with:

python -mooch -s filename filename filename dirname

Sharing a dirname shares all the files in that directory.

Find files to mooch with:

python -mooch

Grab a specific file with:

python -mooch filename

Use python -mooch to discover the other command-line arguments, such as verbosity and port number controls.

Current limitations:

  • you can’t mooch and offer files on the same host
  • the interface is a bit crap
  • no support for auto-zipping files up
  • actually, no compression at all
  • and, you know, a bunch of stuff ‘cos this is a toy thrown together in a few hours

Version History (in Brief)

  • 1.0 is the initial release
