$ curl|gpg -o- > /tmp/hello.txt

Upload to Virustotal:

$ curl -X PUT --upload-file nhgbhhj


$ curl -X DELETE 

Request Headers


$ curl --upload-file ./hello.txt -H "Max-Downloads: 1" # Limit the number of downloads


$ curl --upload-file ./hello.txt -H "Max-Days: 1" # Set the number of days before deletion

Response Headers

If you want to use TLS using lets encrypt certificates, set lets-encrypt-hosts to your domain, set tls-listener to :443 and enable force-https.

If you want to use TLS using your own certificates, set tls-listener to :443, force-https, tls-cert-file and tls-private-key.


Switched to GO111MODULE

go run main.go --provider=local --listener :8080 --temp-path=/tmp/ --basedir=/tmp/


$ git clone [email protected]:dutchcoders/
$ cd
$ go build -o transfersh main.go


For easy deployment, we've created a Docker container.

docker run --publish 8080:8080 dutchcoders/ --provider local --basedir /tmp/

S3 Usage

For the usage with a AWS S3 Bucket, you just need to specify the following options: - provider - aws-access-key - aws-secret-key - bucket - s3-region

If you specify the s3-region, you don't need to set the endpoint URL since the correct endpoint will used automatically.

Custom S3 providers

To use a custom non-AWS S3 provider, you need to specify the endpoint as defined from your cloud provider.

Storj Network Provider

To use the Storj Network as a storage provider you need to specify the following flags: - provider

--provider storj
- storj-access (either via flag or environment variable STORJACCESS)_ - storj-bucket (either via flag or environment variable STORJBUCKET)_

Creating Bucket and Scope

You need to create an access grant (or copy it from the uplink configuration) and a bucket in preparation.

To get started, log in to your account and go to the Access Grant Menu and start the Wizard on the upper right.

Enter your access grant name of choice, hit Next and restrict it as necessary/preferred. Afterwards continue either in CLI or within the Browser. Next, you'll be asked for a Passphrase used as Encryption Key. Make sure to save it in a safe place. Without it, you will lose the ability to decrypt your files!

Afterwards, you can copy the access grant and then start the startup of the endpoint. It is recommended to provide both the access grant and the bucket name as ENV Variables for enhanced security.


export STORJ_ACCESS= --provider storj

Google Drive Usage

For the usage with Google drive, you need to specify the following options: - provider - gdrive-client-json-filepath - gdrive-local-config-path - basedir

Creating Gdrive Client Json

You need to create an OAuth Client id from, download the file, and place it into a safe directory.

Usage example

go run main.go --provider gdrive --basedir /tmp/ --gdrive-client-json-filepath /[credential_dir] --gdrive-local-config-path [directory_to_save_config]
