Easy to use secure file sending & chatting

Project description


Easy to use secure file sending

Slick makes it easy to send files or chat between two people. It is end-to-end encrypted, and uses HTTPS as its transport.


Using python 3.7, run:

pip install slick-app


To start slick, run sk. Running /help you'll get:

/list           -- show active friends and nearby people
/add  [subject] -- add a person
/talk [subject] -- talk to someone
/end            -- stop talking to someone
/quit           -- quit the program
/send           -- send a file
/get            -- get a file

Adding a friend

To add a friend, use the /add command. They will need to approve the request on their side by adding you back.

Interacting with a friend

To interact with a specific friend, use /talk [name]


Once you're interacting with a friend, anything you type without a leading slash will be interpretted as chatting.

Sending a file

To send a file, use /send

Receiving a file

To receive a file, use /get #


Slick uses multicast DNS to broadcast a) a digest of the certificate used by HTTPS b) a tor service to facilitate the initial key exchange.
