Some months ago, I created a simple site for sharing things between friends. It was incredibly basic, written in PHP, and ran on a small Linode VPS. It worked well enough for our puroses, but I was never really happy with it.
A few weeks ago I decided to redo it in Ruby and incorporate some 3rd party services, like S3. I got most of the code written in about an hour and then lost interest - I still had all of the CSS to do at that point.
Last night, I couldn’t sleep and decided to finish it up. So here’s Orng.us:
- It’s a URL shortener
- It’s a file sharing site
- It lets you easily share Markdown-formatted text
- It’s a smple pastebin for some popular web languages
The site is still extremely basic in both form and function, but it does what I need it to do, so I doubt I’ll be adding to it much. That said, I thought other folks might be interested in it, so feel free to use it.
File uploads are password-restricted (contact me if you’re a friend and would like the password), but downloading isn’t. Everything else is free and open to the public.
If you want to host your own version, I open sourced a large chunk of it.
