This is yet another file sharing utility, mainly focussed on being able to handle very large uploads and not being a complete security risk.


  • Supports creating "bins" of files which can have expiry and quotas set
  • Files can be uploaded by an admin to a bin and the bin url can be shared without authentication to anyone
  • Bins can be set up for allowing guest uploads
  • File download count is tracked
  • Expire file x days after last download
  • Expire file x days after upload

#Feature todo

  • Expire file x days after first download
