Launchpad Bug:


It would be interesting to use magic-wormhole (https://github.com/warner/magic-wormhole/) to send and receive the invite codes for magic-folder.

Of course, you could do this already by simply piping the output of tahoe magic-folder invite to wormhome send and the inverse on the other side, but since the invite-codes are secret and need to be transmitted securely it would be nice to have a built-in way to to that and never print out the invite secret in the first place.

Another use-case for using magic-wormhole would be transmitting the Introducer fURL to someone -- e.g. when they're setting up their client for the first time and connecting to a grid.

This could be baked in to tahoe create-node such that it spits out a wormhole code as part of the create-node. Then, the owner of the grid is told the wormhole code and must type it into some (new) command on the introducer (or a plain "wormhole send" invocation?) that sends the introducer fURL to the invitee.
