Droopy Is A Dead Simple File Sharing Web Server

By Jason Fitzpatrick on December 29th, 2011

Windows/Mac/Linux: If you’re looking for a dead simple way for people to share files with you, Droopy is a mini web server with a singular function: helping people upload files to your computer.

Not everyone is technically inclined and sometimes you need people with little technical know-how to share files with you. Droopy makes it as simple as giving them a URL pointing to your home computer/server. You run the python-based web server on your computer, make sure there is an open port on your firewall, and anyone you share the URL with can share the files as easily as sending an email attachment.

Droopy is open-source and works wherever Python does.
