Description KinG-InFeT 2012-03-10 12:45:35 UTC
# imgur script by Bart Nagel <>
# version 2
# I release this as public domain. Do with it what you will.

# Required: curl
# Optional: xsel or xclip for automatically putting the URL on the X selection
# for easy pasting
# Instructions:
# Put it somewhere in your path and maybe rename it:
# 	mv ~/Downloads/ ~/bin/imgur
# Make it executable:
# 	chmod +x ~/bin/imgur
# Stick your API key in the top:
# 	vim ~/bin/imgur
# Upload an image:
# 	imgur images/hilarious/manfallingover.jpg
# The URL will be displayed (and the delete page's URL will be displayed on
# stderr). If you have xsel or xclip the URL will also be put on the X
# selection, which you can usually paste with a middle click.

Reproducible: Always

Interesting script (I use imgur a lot and such a script would really be helpful). Yet, I'd first like to know where this line in the script is *really* coming from:

 25 # API Key provided by
 26 apikey="b3625162d3418ac51a9ee805b1840452"

Not sure Alan would like us to use his private API key in a script freely available on the Internet. For this reason, this cannot hit the tree I'm afraid.
Please reopen and provide us with explanations.
