What is this?

A quick and simple service for getting pictures of whatever-you-want for use as placeholders in your designs or code. Just put your image size (width & height) after the URL and you'll get a placeholder. Similar URL as Placekitten.

There is also a bookmarklet service which works the same as Horse_ebookmarklet.

  1. Go to the code: cd path/to/holder
  2. Get dependencies in place: pip install -r requirements.txt
  3. Start the app: python wsgi.py
  4. Go to http://localhost:5001 in your web browser.
  5. Done!
