Fixes #26

I recently rewrote the zip handling in wormhole-gui for the upcoming
2.2.0 release and I managed to make a few improvements to it at the
same time. I figured that I would be a good open source citizen and
port it upstream so that everyone can use it.

Closes: #33 [via git-merge-pr]

wormhole-william

wormhole-william is a Go (golang) implementation of magic wormhole. It provides secure end-to-end encrypted file transfers between computers. The endpoints are connected using the same "wormhole code".

wormhole-william is compatible with the official python magic wormhole cli tool.

Currently, wormhole-william supports:

  • sending and receiving text over the wormhole protocol
  • sending and receiving files over the transit protocol
  • sending and receiving directories over the transit protocol

CLI tab completion

The wormhole-william CLI supports shell completion, including completing the receive code. To enable shell completion follow the instructions from wormhole-william shell-completion -h.

Building the CLI tool

wormhole-william uses go modules so it requires a version of the go tool chain >= 1.11. If you are using a version of go that supports modules you can clone the repo outside of your GOPATH and do a go build in the top level directory.

To just install via the go tool run:

go install github.com/psanford/wormhole-william@latest

API Usage

Sending text:

package main

import (
	"context"
	"fmt"
	"io/ioutil"
	"log"

	"github.com/psanford/wormhole-william/wormhole"
)

func sendText() {
	var c wormhole.Client

	msg := "Dillinger-entertainer"

	ctx := context.Background()

	code, status, err := c.SendText(ctx, msg)
	if err != nil {
		log.Fatal(err)
	}
	fmt.Println("On the other computer, please run: wormhole receive")
	fmt.Printf("Wormhole code is: %s\n", code)

	s := <-status

	if s.OK {
		fmt.Println("OK!")
	} else {
		log.Fatalf("Send error: %s", s.Error)
	}
}

func recvText(code string) {
	var c wormhole.Client

	ctx := context.Background()
	msg, err := c.Receive(ctx, code)
	if err != nil {
		log.Fatal(err)
	}

	if msg.Type != wormhole.TransferText {
		log.Fatalf("Expected a text message but got type %s", msg.Type)
	}

	msgBody, err := ioutil.ReadAll(msg)
	if err != nil {
		log.Fatal(err)
	}

	fmt.Println("got message:")
	fmt.Println(msgBody)
}

See the cli tool and examples directory for working examples of how to use the API to send and receive text, files and directories.
