  • base65536

    Unicode's answer to Base64

    Sorry, I edited the post concurrently with your comment - it now points to Base2048, the link I meant to post, which actually should work - rather than https://github.com/qntm/base65536 (which I think you're commenting on).

  • redditfs

    An interactive command line utility to save files and directories to Reddit.

  • Podje.li

    Podjeli is file sharing on your terms, encode your file into URLs. SPA written in JavaScript with JQuery.

    I made a tool that lets you store files anywhere you can store a URL: https://podje.li/

  • CDNDrive

    :cloud: CDNDrive = BiliDrive + SuperBed,支持任意文件的全速上传与下载

    This is pretty tame compared to some actual, practical ones such as https://github.com/apachecn/CDNDrive

    For people who didn't read Chinese: it encodes data into 16M blocks in PNG and then uploads (together with a index) to various Chinese social media sites that doesn't re-compress your images. I knew people have used it to store* TBs after TBs data on them already.

    *Of course, it would be foolish to think your data is even remotely safe "storing" them this way. But it's a very good solution for sharing large files.

  • snapchat-fs

    Turns Snapchat into a datastore that can manage and store your files.

    This reminds me of SnapchatFS[1], a side project I made about 8 years ago (see also HN thread[2] at that time).

    From the README.md:

    > Since Snapchat imposes few restrictions on what data can be uploaded (i.e., not just images), I've taken to using it as a system to send files to myself and others.

    > Snapchat FS is the tool that allows this. It provides a simple command line interface for uploading arbitrary files into Snapchat, managing them, and downloading them to any other computer with access to this package.
