Simple client for linx-server

Uses a json configuration and logfile (for storing deletion keys of uploads)


  • Upload file and store deletion key
  • Upload from stdin and store deletion key
  • Overwrite file using stored deletion key
  • Delete file using stored deletion key
  • Sha256sum client-server matching

Get release and run

  1. Grab the latest binary from the releases
  2. Run ./linx-client...


When you first run linx-client, you will be prompted to configure the instance url, logfile path and api keys.

$ ./linx-client  
Configuring linx-client  
Site url (ex:  
Logfile path (ex: ~/.linxlog): ~/.linxlog  
API key (leave blank if instance is public):  
Configuration written at ~/.config/linx-client.conf  


Upload file(s)

$ linx-client path/to/file.ext


  • -f file.ext -- Specify a desired filename (if different from the actual one)
  • -r -- Randomize filename
  • -e 600 -- Time until file expires in seconds
  • -deletekey mysecret -- Specify deletion key
  • -o -- Overwrite file if you have its deletion key
  • -accesskey mykey -- Specify access key
  • -c myconfig.json -- Use non-default config file (can be useful if using more than one linx-server instance). This option will create a config if file does not exist.
  • -no-cb -- Disable automatic insertion into clipboard
  • -selif -- Return selif url (direct url)

Upload from stdin

$ echo "hello there" | linx-client -  

Note: you can specify the -f flag to specify a filename as such:

$ echo "hello there" | linx-client -f hello.txt -  

Overwrite file

Assuming you have previously uploaded file.ext using linx-client (so that you have its deletion key), you can replace the file as such:

$ linx-client -o file.ext  

Delete file(s)

$ linx-client -d
