#Spice Spice is a personal file sharing service. It aims to be a simple and clean alternative to or dropbox for sharing files with friends.


  • Upload many files just by dragging and dropping them on to the page.
  • Upload files via cut and paste
  • Private, public, and limited (viewable by link only) sharing.
  • Syntax highlight code views

##Initial setup:

  1. Checkout this repo
  2. pipenv install
  3. Copy settings-example.cfg to settings.cfg and update values
  4. Export flask env vars: export FLASK_APP=spice export FLASK_ENV=development
  5. Initialize database: flask init-db
  6. Create a user: flask create-user
  7. Run the dev server: flask run

For production you will want to use something besides flask to run the server. This repo includes a spice.service file that uses uwsgi, you can update the paths and copy that to /lib/systemd/service/ and then you should be able to do:

systemctl daemon-reload
systemctl enable spice
systemctl start spice


  • Markdown rendering
  • Handle audio files nicely
  • Export endpoint (should zip all files with correct names (when possible)
  • File sets so you can easily share multiple files
  • note field/custom key
  • See if we can tweak the short-id alphabet (remove - and _)
You can’t perform that action at this time.
