How about an android version of warpinator?

Post by Brody »

I don't know how realistic this is, but I'd like to see an Android version of Warpinator so that I could quickly transfer pictures from my phone to my laptop and PC.

Currently I can use bluetooth, which takes like 5 minutes to transfer just 1 picture, so that is not feasible when I got many pics to copy. Or I can upload to google drive then download with my laptop, but that is kinda clunky and annoying, and I shouldn't have to waste bandwidth to transfer files around on my own network. Or I can connect my phone to my laptop with a usb cable, but I hate hunting around for a usb cable and I shouldn't have to use cables in 2020.

An app that runs on my phone that can see all computers on the same wifi network that are running warpinator so that I could simply send the file over wifi would really be useful.

Is this at all feasible?

I don't want to install KDE or its many libraries/dependencies though.
