    I don’t mean to join the broken record crew here, but is this better than Syncthing in some way?

      This is for file sharing, while Syncthing is for file synchronization. While you could use Syncthing for file sharing as well (and I have used it for that before), it’s definitely more complicated to use, and requires a bit more setup.

        Hm… if I’m reading the README correctly this is a LAN only drop mechanism between a phone and a laptop. Syncthing does that already, albeit with a cumbersome number of features and config for that use case. If that’s not accurate I’m sure you’ll let me know :)

        I would love to see this develop an airdrop-esque Bluetooth / PAN phone to phone feature though! Especially if a compatible iOS app were available that would be really slick.
