README.md

Ruff provides a pop-up web server to Retrieve/Upload Files Fast over LAN, inspired by WOOF (Web Offer One File) by Simon Budig.

It’s based on the idea that not every device has <insert neat file transfer tool here>, but just about every device that can network has an HTTP client, making a hyper-simple HTTP server a viable option for file transfer with zero notice or setup as long as somebody has a copy of RUFF.

Why create RUFF when WOOF exists? WOOF is no longer in the debian repos and it’s easier to go get a tool than it is to hunt down Simon’s website for the latest copy.

Why use RUFF over something like Transfer.sh? Transfer.sh is fantastic for sharing files over the net, but you have to upload, wait for that, then wait on it to download on the destination. If you’re sharing a WiFi network with your target device, it’s a lot simpler and potentially MUCH faster to skip the middle man and chuck your file straight to its new home.

Installation

go get git.tilde.town/diff/ruff

Usage

Assuming $GOPATH is in $PATH:
