? go-remote-storage

Remote File Storage written in Go (server) & Python (client). It is made for demonstrational purposes on how to create a remote storage client & server with communication over TCP (no FTP!). The files are also being sent through TCP, not FTP.

ℹ️ General Info

This is a project which demonstrates a secure and easy way to program a remote file storage application. It has user accounts, which are stored in a MongoDB database. Users can login using the gostore-client python program. Each user has their own folder, and they can perform actions, or run commands. All these commands or actions are being proccessed by the Server. To make this interaction user-friendly, I have created a VSH (virtual shell) in which users can run simple commands and get prompts instead of having to manually send packets to the server. The vsh is also a part of gostore-client.
