Proximate is a social peer-to-peer (P2P) application designed for local device to device networking. It provides social communities with several user functions: Messaging, file sharing, and message boards. The application is designed to be completely P2P, i.e. servers are not needed. It only assumes TCP/IP networking, which means that it works over wireless/wired links such as ad hoc WLAN and Ethernet LAN. The application is written in Python for GNU/Linux systems with a GTK+ GUI, Nokia N900 being the primary platform.
mooseekd is a partial fork of Museek+, containing only the standalone daemon needed to connect to the Soulseek P2P network. Naming has been changed so as not to clash with an existing Museek+/museekd installation. The goal of the fork is to provide a means of having only the daemon installed, without the dependencies on libxml++/glibmm, leaving it with only GLib (using GMarkup instead of libxml++) as a major dependency.
