This is File-and-Forget. Instant web server, just add water!
Based on SDL,
faf -auth user:pass -port 5432 filename
It prints out the valid URL complete with your local IP address
for easy copy-pasting to someone else. It runs for two minutes or
until someone downloads the file once, whichever comes first, then
So far, Linux® and
Windows® are supported. Other ports
are of course welcome.
Update -- Macintosh OSX™ is now
supported by faf. A few cosmetic fixes have also been made to
the code, and the ugly automake crap replaced by simple
handwritten makefiles. Enjoy v0.3!
Update -- Windows® executables and
project files have been added, because it makes a good
proof-of-principle of SDL's portability, and I'll probably use
Update -- static Linux® x86
executables have been added because I found them handy, so maybye
someone else will too. They do not require SDL or SDL_net to be
installed on the system, only pthreads. This has the drawback of
making the executable 500K uncompressed, but there's no such thing
as a free lunch.
