A dead simple Dart library, to find and share files across devices on a network.
Network File #
Network File let's you transparently find, and share files across several other devices in a network running Network File.
Network file works like this -
When a device wants to download a file, (by invoking
NetworkFile.getInstance().findFile()), it issues a UDP broadcast request.
When the UDP broadcast packet reaches a server (created by
NetworkFile.getInstance().run()), the server responds if it has the file.
Once a server responds, the client/server will transfer this file using plain old HTTP.
