Easy and fast file sharing from the command-line. This code contains the server with everything you need to create your own instance. support currently the s3 (Amazon S3) provider and local file system (local).


$ curl --upload-file ./hello.txt

Encrypt & upload:
$ cat /tmp/hello.txt|gpg -ac -o-|curl -X PUT --upload-file "-"

Download & decrypt:
$ curl|gpg -o- > /tmp/hello.txt

Upload to virustotal:
$ curl -X PUT --upload-file nhgbhhj

Add alias to .bashrc or .zshrc:
transfer() {
    # write to output to tmpfile because of progress bar
    tmpfile=$( mktemp -t transferXXX )
    curl --progress-bar --upload-file $1$(basename $1) >> $tmpfile;
    cat $tmpfile;
    rm -f $tmpfile;

alias transfer=transfer
$ transfer test.txt


Parameter Description Value Env
listener port to use for http (:80)
profile-listener port to use for profiler (:6060)
force-https redirect to https false
tls-listener port to use for https (:443)
tls-cert-file path to tls certificate
tls-private-key path to tls private key
temp-path path to temp folder system temp
web-path path to static web files (for development)
provider which storage provider to use (s3 or local)
aws-access-key aws access key AWS_ACCESS_KEY
aws-secret-key aws access key AWS_SECRET_KEY
bucket aws bucket BUCKET
basedir path storage for local provider
lets-encrypt-hosts hosts to use for lets encrypt certificates (comma seperated)
log path to log file

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.


Make sure your GOPATH is set correctly.

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


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/
