Hello Jolla Enthusiasts. Sebastian Sauer (@dipeshsebastian), a third party developer has created a lightweight FTP server, called meeftpserver, specially optimized for MeeGo and Sailfish OS.

For those who don’t know yet, Jolla is a project developed by former Nokia employees. The first Jolla smartphone is running on Sailfish OS, a modified Megoo Linux system, which is Android compatible, uses Wayland as the default display server , uses Nokia N9′s Maliit touchscreen keyboard and comes with interchangeable covers, allowing the users to easily switch them, in order to change the color/model of the phone and comes with impressive hardware specifications. Apps can be installed via the Jolla Store, which will provide both Jolla and Android apps, or via F-Droid, Yandex Store, Amazon App Store, Aptoide and 1Mobile Android Market.
