The Null Pointer
This is a no-bullshit file hosting and URL shortening service that also runs
`0x0.st <https://0x0.st>`_. Use with uWSGI.
2020-12-29 12:27:21 +01:00
To configure 0x0, copy ``instance/config.example.py`` to ``instance/config.py``, then edit
it. Resonable defaults are set, but there's a couple options you'll need to change
before running 0x0 for the first time.
By default, the configuration is stored in the Flask instance directory.
Normally, this is in `./instance`, but it might be different for your system.
For details, see
`the Flask documentation <https://flask.palletsprojects.com/en/2.0.x/config/#instance-folders>`_.

To customize the home and error pages, simply create a ``templates`` directory
in your instance directory and copy any templates you want to modify there.

If you are running nginx, you should use the ``X-Accel-Redirect`` header.
To make it work, include this in your nginx configs ``server`` block::
location /up {
2020-12-29 12:27:21 +01:00
where ``/up`` is whatever youve configured as ``FHOST_STORAGE_PATH``.
2016-11-01 05:17:54 +01:00
For all other servers, set ``FHOST_USE_X_ACCEL_REDIRECT`` to ``False`` and
``USE_X_SENDFILE`` to ``True``, assuming your server supports this.
Otherwise, Flask will serve the file with chunked encoding, which has several
downsides, one of them being that range requests will not work. This is a
problem for example when streaming media files: It wont be possible to seek,
and some ISOBMFF (MP4) files will not play at all.
2016-11-01 05:17:54 +01:00
To make files expire, simply run ``FLASK_APP=fhost flask prune`` every
now and then. You can use the provided systemd unit files for this::
Make sure to edit them to match your system configuration. In particular,
set the user and paths in ``0x0-prune.service``.
2016-11-01 05:17:54 +01:00
Before running the service for the first time and every time you update it
from this git repository, run ``FLASK_APP=fhost flask db upgrade``.

NSFW Detection
0x0 supports classification of NSFW content via Yahoos open_nsfw Caffe
neural network model. This works for images and video files and requires
the following:
* Caffe Python module (built for Python 3)
* ``ffmpegthumbnailer`` executable in ``$PATH``
Network Security Considerations
Keep in mind that 0x0 can fetch files from URLs. This includes your local
network! You should take precautions so that this feature cannot be abused.
0x0 does not (yet) have a way to filter remote URLs, but on Linux, you can
use firewall rules and/or namespaces. This is less error-prone anyway.
For instance, if you are using the excellent `FireHOL <https://firehol.org/>`_,
its very easy to create a group on your system and use it as a condition
in your firewall rules. You would then run the application server under that
