airtar is a tiny wrapper aroundairpaste andtar-fs. It can be used to send multiple files within your local network without knowing the IP or hostname of the receiver. Basicly it does the same as calling
tar c . | airpaste on the sender-side and
airpaste | tar x on the receiver-side. On top it adds some sugar like displaying the transfer rate.
usage on the sender side:
// transfer the files from the current directory airtar . // but you can also choose which files and directories you want to transfer airtar file1.txt file2.txt // ...or use globs airtar *.js // call airpaste with a namespace airtar -n foo .
usage on the receiver side:
// receive files and save them in the current directory airtar -r . // shortcut for 'airtar -r .' airtar // or define a target dir airtar -r ./target // ...use a namespace airtar -r -n foo . // explicity overwrite existing files airtar -r -o .
airtar is meant to be run in a trusted network. The transfered data is not crypted in anyway and you won’t be able to verify who sent it.
npm install airtar -g
