[KUAL Extension] HTTP-based file browser

I use my Kindle Paperwhite 3 everyday for my studies at university. However, it's quite inconvenient to copy documents, specially PDFs into the kindle, because most of the time, I don't bring my laptop or a micro USB cable with me.

After a quick search for standalone HTTP-based file manager, I luckily found https://filebrowser.org/ , which is an open-source option. They are also very nice to have the prebuilt binary for ARMv7 so that I can write some code to implement it into KUAL.

Download KUAL extension (just need to extract and place it under /extensions folder): https://github.com/ngxson/hobby-kind...ases/tag/0.1.0

How to use:
  • Connect your kindle to wifi
  • Open KUAL > HTTP File Server > Start Server
  • Access kindle's IP address from a browser on your laptop/PC/Mobile/...
  • When you're done, press Ctrl + C on kindle, the application should exit

TODO in the future:
  • Show IP address
  • Ability run on the background

Please feel free to make PRs on github!

Thanks for your work

However, the usbnetwork package already includes a scp server:
