I am currently developing a cross-platform application (xamarin) and I am in the need of sending some files to our server using sftp. I have the windows side covered but when it comes to android, it seems all the available options are paid.
So that got me thinking, what would it take to then make my own library using C/C++? I know C++ (I may be a little rusty since I've gravitated towards C# for work), but this isn't about having to learn a new language or not.
I want a bit of a "here-is-what-you-need-to-install" list in the sense that I can then start playing around a bit and see if it would be best to just go for the paid options for android (I'd rather cover all posibilites before talking to my boss). But more than that,this is about the lack of possibilities for hobbyists when it comes to open-source,cross-platform sftp options.
So even if I don't end up doing this for work, I might just do this as a personal project.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
