This project is no longer maintained!
Found a funny cat GIF or an awesome wallpaper album? ImguBox stores those files within your Dropbox automatically.
Read more about this project on my blog.
This application was built with the PHP Framework Laravel 5.2. To run imgubox on your own server you need at least PHP 5.5!
To run the application you need the following:
- A database Server (mysql, sqlite, …)
- A registered Imgur Application
- A registered Dropbox Application
git clone https://github.com/stefanzweifel/imgubox.git && cd imgubox cp .env.example .env composer install php artisan key:generate
After you’ve installed the PHP dependencies you have to update the
.env file to your needs:
- Add Database Credentials,
- Add Client ID, Secret Key, Redirect URL for Imgur and Dropbox
You then need to migrate and seed your database. Run the following on your server:
php artisan migrate --seed
The Application should be ready to go. Open the site in your browser of choice and create an account. You should then be able to connect with your Imgur and Dropbox Account.
Running the Application
The core of imgubox is a scheduled command which runs every 30 minutes. The command will then dispatches a job to the queue for every user with an active Imgur and Dropbox token. The Job gets the latest favorited images of the given user and dispatches another job which will then store the passed Imgur Image in Dropbox.
Add the following line to your
schedule:run runs Laravel’s internal Scheduling class. Read more about it here.
* * * * * php /home/imgubox/artisan schedule:run 1>> /dev/null 2>&1
As described above, Laravel pushed Jobs onto the queue you have configured in the beginning. The Queue can be consumed by the
queue:work command. You can add the following line to your
supervisord configuration. Replace
$YOUR_QUEUE_CONNECTION with whatever you have configured in this file.
php /home/imgubox/artisan queue:work $YOUR_QUEUE_CONNECTION --queue=high,low --daemon 2>&1
