ClipCloud is a program for quickly sharing files. Currently it consists of a command line program written in Python that can upload files to Dropbox.
-A GUI is planned, as well as the ability to upload elsewhere, such as a personal server via SSH.
+## How do I get it?
+`[sudo] pip install clipcloud`
-It has only been primarily tested on Windows but most functionality also works on OS X and Linux. The Dropbox API is bundled with it, but you'll need to install its dependencies, `OAuth` `simplejson` separately and also `wxPython` if you want to take screenshots.
-## Arguments:
