Subject description: mini web server to let others upload files to your computer
 

droopy is available in standard repositories (Debian Buster).

A review with link to the droopy script :
https://www.linux.com/news/easy-file-uploads-droopy

Suppose someone wants to send you a large file. They could try to send it via email, but many email servers impose limits on file size. They could try sending it over during an instant messenger or Internet Relay Chat session, but that's slow, as the file actually gets transferred twice: once to the chat server, then to your machine. File transfer services like RapidShare and MegaUpload are fine, but not for confidential information. Of course, you could set up an FTP server on your box, but you don't want to leave that door open all the time. Luckily, there's now an easy solution: droopy.

This one is worth investigating. Basically a one-way to send files. I anticipate testing this one in the coming weeks and providing feedback here.

Droopy has been available in antiX since 2014.

It's not really "new" news.

If you want to test it, and how easy it is to work, the way to go is do a quick frugal install of antiX-17---which I happened to very recently review here:
