A CLI tool to get a public link for any file

Project Description

## geturl - provide path. get url. ### A CLI tool to get a public link for any file

Uses [filepicker.io](https://www.filepicker.io) to store the files. It’s a cool uploading tool that I’ve been using on my website and this is a hack on top of it.

#### Use Cases

  • You need a quick way to send a file to someone. Instead of attaching it to an email or starting up your FTP server, use this to get a public URL.
  • Another tool in your arsenal of scp, yousendit, and flash drives for quickly exchanging files.

#### Usage

You provide a path, it returns a URL

geturl path/to/file

It also tries to use pbcopy on a mac, xsel or xclip on Linux to put the url into your clipboard.

#### Installation

sudo curl https://raw.github.com/uams/geturl/master/geturl -o /usr/local/bin/geturl; sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/geturl

Enable Clipboard Access (Only necessary on Linux)

sudo apt-get install xclip

#### Notes

It uses Filepicker.io as a storage backend. (They have a 5000 file free limit so it shouldn’t be a problem)
