NAME

       plowup - Simple upload manager for file sharing websites

SYNOPSIS

       plowup [OPTIONS]...  [MODULE_OPTIONS]...  MODULE URL|FILE[:DESTNAME]...

DESCRIPTION

       plowup  is a command-line tool designed for automatic upload on file-sharing websites.  It
       acts like a web browser, retrieving pages and filling HTML forms.

       Anonymous upload is not allowed by all sites, some of  them  may  require  authentication.
       See specific module options below.

OPTIONS

   Common options
       -i, --interface=IFACE
              If your machine has several network interfaces, force using IFACE interface.

       -r, --max-retries=N
              Set  maximum  retries  for  upload  failures.  Apply on module exit value: 1 (fatal
              error), 3 (network error), 7 (captcha error).  Default option value is 0 (no retry)
              and applies for one single upload.

       -t, --timeout=SECS
              Cancel  upload download after SECS seconds of waits. Apply on module exit value: 10
              (temporary  unavailable  error).   This  error  mainly  occurs  on  remote   upload
              operations.   Default  option  value is disabled (no timeout, infinite) and applies
              for one single upload.

           --cache=METHOD
              Cache policy regarding module storage space. Each  module  is  able  to  save  data
              (credentials,  authentication  session,  or  tokens)  in  order to be reused later.
              Available values:
              none: module storage file  is  deleted  before  each  item  processing.   Temporary
              directory is used.
              session  (default):  module storage file is deleted at the end of plowup execution.
              Temporary directory is used.
              shared:    module    storage     file     is     global     and     located     (in
              ~/.config/plowshare/storage/).   It  can be accessed by any other instance of plow*
              scripts.  Warning: There is no atomicity (or file locking) on concurrent access.

              Example: Multiple file upload using a premium account.   If  supported  by  module,
              login stage could be performed once.

   Captcha options
           --9kweu=KEY
              Use 9kw.eu service to solve captchas.

           --antigate=KEY
              Use Antigate.com service to solve captchas.

           --captchabhood=USER:PASSWORD
              Use Captcha Brotherhood service to solve captchas.

           --captchacoin=KEY
              Use CaptchaCoin service to solve captchas.

           --deathbycaptcha=USER:PASSWORD
              Use Death by Captcha service to solve captchas.

           --captchamethod=METHOD
              Force  specific  captcha  solving  method  (if  unspecified  it  is  autodetected).
              Available values:
              imgur: upload image to Imgur.com service, print image url in console and prompt for
              manual entering. Useful for NAS and embedded devices.
              none:  abort  if captcha solving is requested (even if automatic solving service is
              available).
              online: use captcha solving  website  only  (9kweu,  Antigate,  CaptchaBrotherhood,
              CaptchaCoin or DeathByCaptcha account required).
              fb:  display image in framebuffer console and prompt for manual entering. Looks for
              framebuffer viewers: fbi, fim.  FRAMEBUFFER environment variable can contain device
              file. Default is /dev/fb0.
              nox:  display  image  in  console  (text) and prompt for manual entering. Looks for
              ascii viewers: img2txt, aview, tiv.
              x11: display image in an X11 window and  prompt  for  manual  entering.  Looks  for
              viewers: display, feh, sxiv, qiv.  DISPLAY environment variable must not be empty.

           --captchaprogram=PROGRAM
              Call  external  program  or script for solving captchas. Provided executable can be
              located in PATH environment variable.

              Three arguments are given:
              $1 module name (lowercase). For example: mediafire.
              $2 image filename (with full path).
              $3 hint or captcha type (string). For example: recaptcha, solvemedia or digits-4.

              Return value (on stdout) and exit status:
              0: solving success. Captcha Word(s) must be echo'ed.
              2: external solver is not able to solve  requested  captcha.  Let  plowup  continue
              solving it normally (will consider --captchamethod if specified).
              7:  external  solver  failed.   Note:  this exit code is eligible with retry policy
              (-r/--max-retries).

              Note: plowup legacy exit errors can also be returned, for example: 1 (fatal)  or  3
              (network).

   Tuning settings
           --max-rate=SPEED
              Limit upload maximum speed in bytes per second. Suffixes are:
              k  for kilobytes (kB i.e. 1000),
              M  for megabytes (MB i.e. 1000^2),
              K or Ki  for kibibytes (KB or KiB i.e. 1024),
              m or Mi  for mebibytes (mB or MiB i.e. 1024^2).

           --min-rate=SPEED
              Limit  upload  minimum  speed  in  bytes  per  second  (for a delay of 30 seconds).
              Suffixes are the same than --max-rate.

           --temp-directory=DIRECTORY
              Directory for temporary files: cookies, images, ...

           --name=FORMAT
              Format destination filename (applies on each file argument). Can be useful  is  you
              want  to  append  or  prepend a string to all your files.  Default format string is
              "%f". Interpreted sequences are:

              %%     raw % character

              %f     destination (remote) filename

              %g     destination (remote) filename (without extension)

              %G     destination (remote) filename (without extension, greedy)

              %h     MD5 hash (32-digit hexadecimal number, lowercase letters)

              %l     source (local) filename

              %s     file size (in bytes)

              %x     extension (without dot character) of %f (not greedy)

           --run-before=PROGRAM
              Call external program or script before upload file processing. Provided  executable
              can  be  located  in  PATH  environment  variable.  Messages can be sent to stderr,
              stdout is trashed.

              Three arguments are given:
              $1 module name (lowercase). For example: mediafire.
              $2 local filename
              $3 destination filename
              $4 cookie (initially empty) file given to upload module function.

              Exit status:
              0: script success. plowup continue normally.
              2: script explicitly requests skipping current file.

              Note: Any other script exit status like 1 (fatal) or 3 (network)  will  be  ignored
              (an error message will be reported).

           --printf=FORMAT
              Print  results (on stdout) in a given format (for each successful upload).  Default
              format string is "%L%M%u%n". Interpreted sequences are:

              %%     raw % character

              %a     admin url or admin code (rare case)

              %A     same as %a but url is escaped for JSON usage

              %M     empty if %a is empty, or alias to "#ADM %a%n".

              %d     delete url

              %D     same as %d but url is escaped for JSON usage

              %L     empty if %d is empty, or alias to "#DEL %d%n".

              %f     destination (remote) filename

              %l     source (local) filename

              %m     module name

              %n     newline

              %s     filesize (positive integer in bytes)

              %t     tabulation character

              %T     24-hour clock time of finished file  upload.  8  characters  string  in  the
                     format "HH:MM:SS" (invoke /bin/date +%T).

              %u     download url

FILES

       /etc/plowshare.conf
              Systemwide configuration file.

       ~/.config/plowshare/plowshare.conf
              This is the per-user configuration file.

       The file format is described in plowshare.conf(5).

       ~/.config/plowshare/exec/
              Additional directory considered when searching for executable. See --captchaprogram
              switch.

       ~/.config/plowshare/modules.d/
              User directory considered when searching for modules at startup (plowup will try to
              open ~/.config/plowshare/modules.d/*/config). One file per module (hoster).

       ~/.config/plowshare/storage/
              Directory used  for  storing  data  (one  file  per  module)  among  sessions.  See
              --cache=shared switch.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       The following environment variables may affect plowup:

       DISPLAY
              The   X11   display   server   address  is  considered  to  display  captchas.  See
              --captchamethod=x11 documentation below.

       FRAMEBUFFER
              This  variable  is  considered  to   display   captchas.   See   --captchamethod=fb
              documentation below.

       HOME   Search  for  user configuration directory in ~/.config/plowshare (see FILES section
              above).  If found, ~/.curlrc will be used (use --no-curlrc to disable it).

       PLOWSHARE_CURL
              Specifies an alternate curl command ($PATH search is considered). If  not  defined,
              curl is used.

       PLOWSHARE_JS
              Specifies  an alternate js command ($PATH search is considered). If not defined, js
              is used.

       PLOWSHARE_DEBIAN_JS
              When set to yes javascript is enabled, otherwise it is blocked  per  #791467.  Note
              that  arbitrary  javascript  downloaded  from  the Internet will be run without any
              sandboxing if this is enabled.

       XDG_CONFIG_HOME
              The directory to store user configuration  files.  If  not  defined,  ~/.config  is
              assumed.

EXIT CODES

       Possible exit codes are:

       0      Success.

       1      Fatal error. Upstream site updated or unexpected result.

       2      No available module (provided module name does not exist).

       3      Network error. Mostly curl related.

       4      Authentication failed (bad login/password).

       5      Timeout reached (refer to -t/--timeout command-line option).

       6      Maximum tries reached (refer to -r/--max-retries command-line option).

       7      Captcha generic error.

       8      System generic error.

       10     Feature  (upload service) seems temporarily unavailable from upstream (user account
              may be temporarily banned).

       12     Authentication required (example: anonymous users can't do remote upload).

       14     Can't upload too big file (hoster limitation or requires more permissions).

       15     Unknown command line parameter or incompatible options.

       16     Asynchronous remote upload started (can't predict final status).

       If plowup is invoked with multiple files and one or several errors occur, the first  error
       code is returned added with 100.
