This is yet another unofficial Firefox Send client, written in Go.
It aims to be lean, easy to audit and hackable,
so it lacks fancy features.
For example, it doesn't bother fetching the metadata associated
with the downloads, so your files will be named
Feel free to hack away on this client. If you do find bugs, you can file an issue, or better yet, a pull request.
You will need to install Go.
To download and compile ffsendr, use
go get github.com/geekman/ffsendr
ffsendr executable should now be in your
This client can upload and download files, but provides some additional control over encryption.
Note that due to the behavior of Go's flag parsing library, all flags (options) must be placed in front before the action verb.
ffsendr upload <file>
When uploading, you can control the master key used to encrypt the file
by specifying the
ffsendr download https://send.firefox.com/download/00aabbccdd/#azkwH...
You can download the file either using the full link with the secret key appended, or without:
ffsendr -authkey ... download https://send.firefox.com/download/00aabbccdd/
If you do not specify the secret, you will need an auth key instead. See below on how it can be derived.
Subsequently, you will also need to manually decrypt the file with:
ffsendr -key azkwH... decrypt <file>
You can show the generated keys by using the
ffsendr -key azkwH... keys
Among the keys generated is the auth key, which you can use for downloading files.
While the keys generated are shown in hex, keys specified in flags must be in raw (no padding) URL-safe Base64.
