DeskConn is a secure, open-source, cross-distro daemon based on Crossbar/Autobahn. Its "components" allow to expose a client's functionality over the network.
I want to introduce an open-source project that I have been working on for the last few months, the goal is to make it simple to enable communication between clients on a local network, expose functionalities using RPCs so that developers could innovate by writing their own components (read: plugins)
The umbrella project is https://github.com/deskconn/, it includes an extension for Google Chrome that raises a laptop's screen brightness when netflix.com goes fullscreen, there is also a component for the raspberrypi to remotely control its GPIO pins. The android app, when paired with the computer allows to move around the mouse cursor, change screen brightness and even lock the screen.
