Woof – simply exchange files – one-time sharing of a file over http

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/06/22

Woof is a small simple stupid webserver that can easily be invoked on a single file. Your partner can access the file with tools he trusts (e.g. wget). No need to enter passwords on keyboards where you don’t know about keyboard sniffers, no need to start a huge lot of infrastructure, just do a

$ woof filenameand

tell the recipient the URL woof spits out. When he got that file, woof will quit and everything is done.And when someone wants to send you a file, woof has a switch to offer itself, so he can get woof and offer a file to you. …

Woof needs Python on a unix’ish operating system. Some people have used it successfully on Windows within the cygwin environment.
