A set of programs to enable an "image grab" type site.
How it works (when set up)
- You locate an image you want to see, that is blocked (for whatever reason) where you're trying to look at it.
- You go on the server you're running the grab on, and run
- It spits out a URL you can use to see the image.
- Once the image has been in the grab for about 1 hour, it's deleted. Goodbye!
How to set it up
rawurlme in your
~/bin directory, making sure to change
PATH to your image grab directory in
grabimg and properly setting up
grab_expire_cron somewhere, and then add a line to your crontab like so:
*/15 * * * * /path/to/grab_expire_cron
This will check every 15 minutes for files that have existed for over an hour, and delete them. For extra granularity, you can lower the check to every 5 minutes, or even set it to check every minute.
Congrats! Your image grab is now functional!
