Coquelicot — /kɔ.kli.ko/ — is a “one-click” file sharing web application with a focus on protecting users’ privacy.

Basic principle: users can upload a file to the server, in return they get a unique URL which can be shared with others in order to download the file.

Coquelicot aims to protect, to some extent, users and system administrators from disclosure of the files exchanged from passive and not so active attackers.

To know all about features, please refer to the README.

To get your own installation of Coquelicot, simply download its source code and follow the installation instructions!
