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.

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.
