I've been playing with this tiny file sharing program called Droopy and thought I'd share it with the community.

Once you start the software anything in the designated share folder will be shared with anything that has a web browser - phones, tablets, other computers, even in Virtualbox between the host and guest OS.

Here's a video describing the program. One note while watching the video. The setup used in the video is NOT the same for Linux Lite. Installation directions are below.


Website for software

Installation instuctions for Linux Lite 2

Install Droopy, in a terminal type
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install droopy
Run Droopy using the Public folder. Open a terminal and type
Code: [Select]
droopy -d ~/Public --dl
Get the ip address of your machine
network icon in panel > click once > information
example, 192.168.1.100

Open any web browser and go to this address
192.168.1.100:8000

P.S. I'm posting the video and brief directions instead of a complete tutorial. If you have any questions post them here and I'll do my best to answer them.

Excellent work! For those (Like ME!) who are "over" (just became lazy) command lines, Droopy is available through synaptic.
