regenwolken 0.6.2

open source, self-hosting CloudApp

# regenwolken – an open source CloudApp server

[Cloud.app][app] is really handy, sharing files was never that easy. But I don't like to see (personal) data like screenshots or code snippets go out of my reach. Regenwolken is a full-featured implementation of the Cloud App API with one malus: you have do edit your /etc/hosts.

#### open server

I've set up a server open for everyone. Simply, add 134.255.239.78 my.cl.ly to your /etc/hosts. Items older than three days will be purged at midnight (only a small vserver). Happy testing!

## Quickstart

Short instructions for OS X, adapt these commands to your linux distribution of choice (Debian Squeeze!).

$ brew install mongodb $ mongod --dbpath foo/ &

Now install regenwolken and its dependencies:

$ easy_install regenwolken $ easy_install pygments Pillow markdown # optional

Modify /etc/hosts, launch regenwolken and register a new account

$ echo "12.34.56.78 my.cl.ly" | sudo tee -a /etc/hosts $ regenwolken & [... open Cloud.app or another client and register a new account] $ rwctl activate USERNAME

You can change that behavior to instantly activate new users using a configuration file such as /path/to/rw.cfg with the following:

$ cat /path/to/rw.cfg PUBLIC_REGISTRATION = True $ export REGENWOLKEN_SETTINGS=/path/to/rw.cfg $ regenwolken

## How to use regenwolken

As an alternative CloudApp-server, you have to edit their DNS my.cl.ly to point to your own IP. This will not interfere with CloudApp Service itself, because they are using cl.ly and f.c.ly for sharing.

$ echo "12.34.56.78 my.cl.ly" | sudo tee -a /etc/hosts

Note: you should set a hostname (= your domain) in regenwolken.cfg. This will return into customized URLs, pointing directly to your host, so others don't need to modify their hosts.

## Setup and Configuration

See [DEPLOYMENT.md](https://github.com/posativ/regenwolken/blob/master/doc/DEPLOYMENT.md) and [CONFIG.rst](https://github.com/posativ/regenwolken/blob/master/doc/CONFIG.rst) for details.

## API implementation

regenwolken provides all API calls to get Cloud.app working and has only few calls of [CloudApp's API](http://developer.getcloudapp.com/) missing. See [API.md](https://github.com/posativ/regenwolken/blob/master/doc/API.md) for a complete list of features. Below, the following are currently covered by the web interface.

# -H "Accept: text/html"

/ - GET basic web interface /items/<short_id> - GET file or redirect from bookmark /items/<short_id>/filename - GET same as /items/<short_id> /<short_id> - GET viso-like file view or redirect from bookmark /thumb/<short_id> - GET thumbnail of item

Thanks to [cmur2](https://github.com/cmur2) for his feature-rich [CLI](https://github.com/cmur2/cloudapp-power-cli) (with HTTPS support!) and help to build this service!

## Clients

If you are working on a API or Client for CloudApp, please consider a configurable service url. That makes the hosts file hack unnecessary and as a side effect you can use HTTPS for all connections (feature is still in master).

### working

Do not use the official cloudapp-cli app, it is still beta, has much fewer features and does not support other services out-of-the-box.

### failing clients
