Q: I’m having trouble with the Auto Update function
A: As of Version 0.0.8 - all MacOS packages are code signed and notarized, auto update will not work. Please make sure you have at least v0.1.0 installed.
UPDATE 01/04/22: RiftShare is now available on the Mac App Store.
Q: When will Linux be supported?
A: RiftShare uses the Wails framework. Wails should support Linux by January 2022, so at that time I will evaluate distributing the app for Linux.
UPDATE 04/20/22: Linux version is now available on FlatHub
Q: Why am I getting security warnings on Windows?
A: The security warning is because the code has not been signed on the Windows version. If there is enough demand, I will purchase a signing certificate to remove the warning. For now though there is nothing to worry about.
UPDATE 01/05/22: I have uploaded RiftShare to the Microsoft Windows Store. If you want a secure, signed version off the app, please use the store.
Q: What’s in it for you? Why spend your time on this project? How do you make money?
A: I currently do not make any money from this project. All costs have been covered by me thus far and I am not asking for anything in return. My motivation was purely to give people a way to transfer files securely and easily. Since this will cost me about $150 per year to support in hosting / developer certificate costs (Not including my time), I will soon open up donations for those who are interested. Additionally, I will add contributing guidelines for those who want to help out on the GitHub repo.
