Problem: Coquelicot’s (the file sharing app) author has stopped maintaining it. The app is in Ruby and future Ruby binary upgrades are affecting the working of the app. We need to look for a replacement.
I was discussing this briefly with @njoseph and we had the following options in mind:
- Fix coquelicot for newer Ruby versions
- Find a new project that accomplishes this and integrate with FreedomBox (package for Debian if necessary)
- Write a fresh alternative
I was exploring option 2, and assumed the following features to be present in the alternative:
- A web frontend
- Has the ability to generate a unique link for the file to be shared
I found this https://github.com/YouTransfer/YouTransfer
Let me know what you think about this. Also drop in your opinions on the above options.
