Install & run with Docker

This section requires Docker and docker compose.

git clone
cd zipline

docker compose up -d

After installing

After installing, please edit the docker-compose.yml file and find the line that says SECRET=changethis and replace changethis with a random string. Ways you could generate the string could be from a password managers generator, or you could just slam your keyboard and hope for the best.

Building & running from source

This section requires nodejs, yarn.

It is recommended to not use npm, as it can cause issues with the build process.

Before you run yarn build, you might want to configure Zipline, as when building from source Zipline will need to read some sort of configuration. The only two variables needed are CORE_SECRET and CORE_DATABASE_URL.

git clone
cd zipline

yarn install
yarn build
yarn start


This section requires NGINX.

server {
  listen 80 default_server;
  client_max_body_size 100M;
  server_name <your domain (optional)>;
  location / {
    proxy_pass http://localhost:3000;
    proxy_set_header Host $host;
    proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;


The default port is 3000, once you have accessed it you can see a login screen. The default credentials are "administrator" and "password". Once you login please immediately change the details to something more secure. You can do this by clicking on the top right corner where it says "administrator" with a gear icon and clicking Manage Account.

ShareX (Windows)

This section requires ShareX.

After navigating to Zipline, click on the top right corner where it says your username and click Manage Account. Scroll down to see "ShareX Config", select the one you would prefer using. After this you can import the .sxcu into sharex. More information here

Flameshot (Linux(Xorg/Wayland) and macOS)

This section requires Flameshot, jq, and xsel.

Wayland instructions

If using wayland you will need to have wl-clipboard installed, for the wl-copy command.

If you are not using GNOME/KDE/Qtile/Sway, and are using something like a wlroots-based compositor (ex. Hyprland, River, etc), you will need to set the XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP environment variable to sway, which will just override it for this script. Adding export XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=sway to the start of the script will work.

After this, replace the xsel -ib with wl-copy in the script.

Mac instructions

If using macOS, you can replace the xsel -ib with pbcopy in the script.

You can either use the script below, or generate one directly from Zipline (just like how you can generate a ShareX config). To upload files using flameshot we will use a script. Replace $TOKEN and $HOST with your own values, you probably know how to do this if you use linux.

DATE=$(date '+%h_%Y_%d_%I_%m_%S.png');
flameshot gui -r > ~/Pictures/$DATE;

curl -H "Content-Type: multipart/form-data" -H "authorization: $TOKEN" -F file=@$1 $HOST/api/upload | jq -r 'files[0].url' | xsel -ib
