$ links --footer="by <a href=http://juliangruber.com/>Julian Gruber</a>"

How it works

You start writing and get a public link. You send that link to someone and they see your content. As soon as they start editing themselves they get their own link which they can share again.

As long as you keep your tab open you can edit without getting a new link.

Running

You need at least node 0.11.0 to run this.

For production:

$ sudo npm install -g links
$ cd dir/to/put/the/db/in
$ links

For development:

$ git clone git@github.com:juliangruber/links.git && cd links
$ npm install
$ sudo npm link
$ links

CLI

  • --port, -p The port to run on
  • --footer Footer html to display
  • --db The path to the db, or hostname:port address to the multilevel server to connect to

TODO

  • setup public instance
  • add saving indicator
  • evaluate storage mechanisms for the token

Behind the scenes

Using koa for http, leveldb for the database and component for client side javascript.
