tensoid: sendoid without flash

tensoid is a technical attempt to do what http://sendoid.com/ does without flash.

How to Install

Clone this git repo and do npm install. The usual node stuff.

How to Use

Access tendoid and drag and drop some file, and you'll get an URL. Tell this URL to someone you want to share the file with. Make sure you are still on the page when the someone opens the URL. That initiates a file transfer from your browser to the someone's browser in realtime.

Web Browsers

tensoid works on Chrome and Firefox (6 and probably later). I'm using webkit-prefixed functions :p I'm planning to make it work with decent web browsers.

Demo

To run your own tensoid, just git clone this repository and run:

$ node app.js

Modify config.js to fit it to your environment.

Or try running demo at http://tensoid.pictshare.me.

Notes

Technically, tensoid does not do exactly how sendoid does its file transfer. Sendoid uses flash and flash actually allows P2P communications among web browsers, but tensoid is sending a chunk to server and the server sends it to receiver.

Other thing is a name of file downloaded. At the moment, it tries to download with some weird name without file extension. You should rename the name, especially the file extension to use it with appropriate application.

Credits

Sendoid for a procedure to initiate file transfer (set file, get url, and let receiver access it).
