Share files from command line with transfer.sh: a simple cheatsheet
Transfer.sh is a website that helps users to share files from the command-line an efficient way.
It won’t required any additional software to work except cURL.
If your linux distribution doesn't have cUrl (unlikely!), you can install it with
sudo apt install curl
The service is free and allows users to upload files up to 10 GB, that are deleted automatically from server after 14 days.
Here a brief cheatsheet.
$ curl --upload-file ./hello.txt https://transfer.sh/hello.txt
Encrypt & upload
$ cat /tmp/hello.txt|gpg -ac -o-|curl -X PUT --upload-file "-" https://transfer.sh/test.txt
Download & decrypt
$ curl https://transfer.sh/1lDau/test.txt|gpg -o- > /tmp/hello.txt
Upload and check with virustotal
$ curl -X PUT --upload-file nhgbhhj https://transfer.sh/test.txt/virustotal
Add to .bashrc or .zshrc:
# write to output to tmpfile because of progress bar
tmpfile=$( mktemp -t transferXXX )
curl --progress-bar --upload-file $1 https://transfer.sh/$(basename $1) >> $tmpfile;
rm -f $tmpfile;
$ transfer test.txt
