Peer-to-peer file transfers in your browser Cooked up by Alex Kern & Neeraj Baid while eating Sliver @ UC Berkeley.

Using WebRTC, FilePizza eliminates the initial upload step required by other web-based file sharing services. When senders initialize a transfer, they receive a “tempalink” they can distribute to recipients. Upon visiting this link, recipients’ browsers connect directly to the sender’s browser and may begin downloading the selected file. Because data is never stored in an intermediary server, the transfer is fast, private, and secure. (Your PC must be online while the recipient download the file(s), if you shutdown the PC or goes offline, the download also stops)

You can selfhost it or use the official instance

      I think it’s called Nearby Share. If you click “share” on a particular file, the option to share to a nearby device appears using Nearby Share.

        Hmm I think that works based on Bluetooth. I want it to work based on the network, as some of my PCs don’t have bluetooth. LocalSend works fine though.
