In my previous article I showed how you can transfer files from laptop to mobile with just a single command.
Inspired from the below comment. I decided to create a Python program which will generate a QR code and using that QR code you can access your laptop files in your mobile.
I saw an app that generates the QR code to access the file over LAN. I don't remember the name, but I think it's not that hard to write your own. That would be much simpler to get the file rather than typing 192.168.whatever in your browser and then finding the file.
#Import libraries import socket import http.server import socketserver import cv2 import pyqrcode from pyqrcode import QRCode from PIL import Image
Get IP address
hostname = socket.gethostname() IP = socket.gethostbyname(hostname) print("Your Computer IP Address is:" + IP)
url1 is a variable which will concatenate the IP ADDRESS and PORT number to form a string which will converted into a QR code and after that the
http.server will start running.
url1 = IP + ":" + "8000" #Generate QR Code url = pyqrcode.create(url1) url.png("myqr.png",scale=8) img = cv2.imread("myqr.png") #print(type(img)) cv2.imwrite('myqr.png',img) im = Image.open('myqr.png') im.show() #Start http server Handler = http.server.SimpleHTTPRequestHandler with socketserver.TCPServer(("", 8000), Handler) as httpd: print("Running your port") httpd.serve_forever()
Now, save that file with name
test.py and run.
NOTE: Your laptop and your mobile should be to same network
