Dsdrop: instant file sharing server

Feb 2015 - 1 min read

Early 2014, I needed a way of sharing file via a quick URL. Not willing to use dropbox or similar, I created DSDROP.

DSDROP uses content addressable storage for de-duplication and instant uploads – if the server has already seen the file there is no need to re-upload it.

It supports multiple authentication/authorisation mechanisms, such as LDAP:

CLI login

There’s an NW.JS experimental GUI for people that prefer it. It can be added to a Microsoft Windows Explorer context menu, or a Mac OS X Finder add-on.

Status page

There’s even a real-time status page to show you what the server is up to.
