Notes

share_local is Nautilus ( Gnome Shell File Manager ) script .

The script simply streams selected File to Port 8080 on local machine.

Steps:

Save the script as ~/.local/share/nautilus/scripts/share_local file.

From Nautilus , select File > Context Menu > Scripts > share_local . The file will be streamed through port 8080 of your local machine.

You should be able to download the stream via another machine/browser with http://YourIP:8080/ . Note your browser may not support this. If so, use “wget http://YourIP:8080” and the file will be saved as “index.html”

You can also download the file using a mobile browser , like latest Opera Browser for Android. Try to send a file two times , since Opera attempts to run any file on first attempt.
