Announcing tmpshare v1.0
I’m happy to announce version 1.0 of tmpshare a self-hosted file sharing tool.
The most basic example of tmpshare’s usage looks like this:
# Create a file $ echo "Hello World" > hello-world # Add it to tmpshare $ tmpshare add hello-world D2A84F4B8B650937EC8F73CD8BE2C74ADD5A911BA64DF27458ED8229DA804A26 # Show the served files $ tmpshare list D2A84F4B8B650937EC8F73CD8BE2C74ADD5A911BA64DF27458ED8229DA804A26: hello-world # Start the server $ tmpshare serve Serving from http://127.0.0.1:8080 # (In another terminal or your browser) # Get the file $ curl http://127.0.0.1:8080/get/D2A84F4B8B650937EC8F73CD8BE2C74ADD5A911BA64DF27458ED8229DA804A26 Hello World # In a cronjob or when you feel like it delete all files older than X days # Assuming we've waited for at least a month $ tmpshare cleanup deleted D2A84F4B8B650937EC8F73CD8BE2C74ADD5A911BA64DF27458ED8229DA804A26: hello-world
For now this is just the bare minimum to provide a self-hosted file sharing service, that handles purging old files, so you don’t have to handle this.
Ideas for the future include:
- (Authenticated) uploading of new files
- Serving multiple files with one URL
- (Authenticated) listing of all available files
- Optionally pushing the deletion date for used files
I’m looking forward to improving tmpshare on stream, improve my streaming, and learn from the communiy.
Thanks for your time, Zoran
