Get things from one computer to another, safely.

This package provides a library and a command-line tool named

wormhole
, which makes it possible to get arbitrary-sized files and directories (or short pieces of text) from one computer to another. The two endpoints are identified by using identical "wormhole codes": in general, the sending machine generates and displays the code, which must then be typed into the receiving machine.

The codes are short and human-pronounceable, using a phonetically-distinct wordlist. The receiving side offers tab-completion on the codewords, so usually only a few characters must be typed. Wormhole codes are single-use and do not need to be memorized.

For complete documentation, please see https://magic-wormhole.readthedocs.io or the docs/ subdirectory.

This program uses two servers, whose source code is kept in separate repositories: the mailbox server, and the transit relay.
