plowup - Simple upload manager for file sharing websites
plowup [OPTIONS]... [MODULE_OPTIONS]... MODULE URL|FILE[:DESTNAME]...
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.
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 %m module name %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 %U same as %u but url is escaped for JSON usage Logging options -v, --verbose=LEVEL Set output verbosity level: 0 none, 1 errors, 2 notice (default behavior), 3 debug, 4 report (very noisy, log HTML pages). -q, --quiet Alias for -v0. Do not print any debug messages. Miscellaneous options --no-color Disables log messages (stderr only) output coloring. --no-curlrc Do not use curl config file (~/.curlrc). --curlrc=FILE Force using an alternate curl configuration file. Replaces ~/.curlrc if it exists. This option has no effect when --no-curlrc is defined. --no-plowsharerc Do not consider any configuration file. --plowsharerc=FILE Force using an alternate configuration file (instead of per-user or systemwide plowshare.conf). This option has no effect when --no-plowsharerc is defined. --modules Display all supported module names (one per line) and exit. Useful for wrappers. Generic program information -h, --help Display main help and exit. -H, --longhelp Display complete help (with module options) and exit. --version Output version information and exit.
Common options -a, --auth=USER:PASSWORD Use premium account. -b, --auth-free=USER:PASSWORD Use free account. -d, --description=DESCRIPTION Set file description. --folder=FOLDER Folder to upload files into. Usually a (leaf) folder name (no hierarchy assumed). -p, --link-password=PASSWORD Protect your files with a password. May require premium account. --email-from=EMAIL <From> field for notification email. --email-to=EMAIL <To> field for notification email. Advanced options --async Asynchronous remote upload (only start upload, don't wait for link). --private Do not allow others to download the file. All switches are not implemented nor required for all modules. See long help message for detailed modules option list.
/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.
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.
