regenwolken – an open source, self-hosting Cloud.app
CloudApp sucks! Well, Cloud.app is really handy – but it's free of charge and this can't be good! regenwolken offers an alternate API implementation; hosted on your own server!
I've set up a server open for everyone. Simply, add
/etc/hosts. Items older than three days will be purged at midnight
(only a small vserver). Happy testing!
How to use regenwolken
To work as an alternative CloudApp-server, you have to edit their DNS my.cl.ly to point your own IP in /etc/hosts. This will not interfere with CloudApp-Service itself, because they're using cl.ly and f.c.ly for sharing.
You might wonder, why we ask for "my.cloud.org|my.cl.ly". Your /etc/hosts will resolve my.cl.ly to your server IP and requesting with the Host my.cl.ly, but it returns an URL pointing to your (real) server/domain.
Note: you should set a hostname (=domain name) in conf.yaml, where you host regenwolken. This will return into customized URLs, pointing directly to your server.
