A simple command line client for uploading files to Imgur.

Created for my PyCon US 2015 Docker tutorial so that students using my cloud servers can see the gifs they create at the end of exercise 1.

Getting Imgur API credentials

Go to https://api.imgur.com/oauth2/addclient and register a new Imgur API client. You will need an Imgur account to do this.

You can put it any valid URL for the callback URL - we won't be using it.

Using imgur-uploader

First, set the IMGUR_API_ID and IMGUR_API_SECRET environment variables in your terminal session, using your client's credentials.
