I took some time this week to finish up a total do-over of and it's very different, jaja. Mainly it's backed on IPFS now for storage-- so files are now, hypothetically, perfectly distributed and permanent (yayy buzzwords)!

There is one change in functionality: when you upload a file, the file is added to the IPFS node (and a hash is generated, like QmXfviZGH2CzqpqoXhoNyMsg3bL4pvP…), and can be accessed at….
To make that all less of a hassle, the file-name (either the one you give or the one that comes with the file) is used to make a shortened URL by default, that'll redirect to the IPFS link. (I.E.,

You'll get a nice, short link with the file-name, just like before-- but it'll redirect people to the less-pretty, longer IPFS hash.

Hope you all like the changes (or at least don't mind them too badly).

Thanks for your continued work, this is awesome. It also makes the whole ordeal a good bit more secure.

is there a way to use the firefox extension to load it with local ipfs?

yea, you can use IPFS Companion, and it'll automatically redirect all IPFS gateway stuff to your local one.
(it'll be slower, because most of the time the only node with a file is the node itself, but you'd be helping with that! =w=)

I'm getting a 503 error most of the time.

Have you had issues since..? I'm pretty sure I fixed everything, just wanna be sure.
