+_Receiving large files over the internet_
+This project assembles multiple technologies to ease the transfer of large files over the internet.
+The backend is written in Go and uses [tusd](https://github.com/tus/tusd/) for reliable transfers.
+The frontend uses [uppy](https://uppy.io/) to be usable in the browser.
+1. Run the server using `go run main.go`
+2. Make a hole in your firewall and add a forwarding rule to your home router for the port 54321
+3. Send your IP address to the sender, in the form http://[YOUR-IP]:54321
+4. Enjoy your files in the `upload` folder
+**Caveat**: the name of the uploaded file is random, however you can find the original name in the accompanying `.info` file.
