Sending Files Locally - 03-05-20

For a long time I used pushbullet to quickly send pictures to my android phone from my mac.

Ex: Took cool terminal screen shot and want to post it to my Instagram story via my phone.

Problem: The pushbullet firefox extention on mac has a dialog bug prefenting file upload.

Solution:

  1. Connect phone and mac to same WIFI network

  2. Start local seb server, hosting the screen_shots folder

    $ npx http-server ./screen_shots
    
  3. Send the local ip url to phone via pushbullet

  4. Profit
