    airtar

    airtar is a tiny wrapper around airpaste and tar-fs. It can be used to send multiple files within your local network without knowing the IP or hostname of the receiver. Basicly it does the same as calling tar c . | airpaste on the sender-side and airpaste | tar x on the receiver-side. On top it adds some sugar like displaying the transfer rate.

    usage on the sender side:

    // transfer the files from the current directory
    airtar .
    
    // but you can also choose which files and directories you want to transfer
    airtar file1.txt file2.txt
    
    // ...or use globs
    airtar *.js
    
    // call airpaste with a namespace
    airtar -n foo .
    

    usage on the receiver side:

    // receive files and save them in the current directory
    airtar -r .
    
    // shortcut for 'airtar -r .'
    airtar
    
    // or define a target dir
    airtar -r ./target
    
    // ...use a namespace
    airtar -r -n foo .
    
    // explicity overwrite existing files
    airtar -r -o .
    

    security notice

    airtar is meant to be run in a trusted network. The transfered data is not crypted in anyway and you won't be able to verify who sent it.
