If you're a Non-Apple user but still want to use something like AirDrop, snapdrop.net could be for you.

@garritfra And the site doesn’t actually host the information right? It’s just shared from computer to computer?

@garritfra Been using a syncthing folder just for passing files around, but I might start using this instead.

@garritfra Interesting! Gotta experiment with this a little more.

In the past I used AirDroid. But I stopped, as I tried to move away from closed source. (And partially towards more flexible DIY solutions.)

airdroid.com/

@garritfra Just tried it and transferring from Android (Firefox) to iOS (Safari) worked like a charm, but the other way did not work. I can select a file from iOS, but the transfer never starts.

Anyway it sounds like a nice project!

@garritfra Really love this tool, but linux <-> iOS is an absolute bear.

Have to use a chromium browser on linux, and even then its incredibly inconsistent. I end up syncing things with nextcloud instead of this because it ends up being faster and more reliable.

Wish I could use it more because the text sharing is especially useful

Always a disappointment to read open source programmers use proprietary communications; where is the fediverse account?
Snapdrop



Instantly share images, videos, PDFs, and links with people nearby. Peer2Peer and Open Source. No Setup, No Signup.

@garritfra That looks interesting and very useful. I'm kinda offended thst something like this is possible with a web app, it just seems wrong.

It's a damn shame that AirDrop isn't an open standard

@skadi Snapdrop is open source, I'm sure there's a way to make it an open standard.
