chevereto

what

To solve some problems

  • some web only use markdown and can’t upload pictures,such as v2ex.com
  • some pics you don’t want to give it to others for long time,such as your interesting story
  • give your blog’s can speed when download bigger pics
  • and so on

Picture Bed can offer you a excellent platform to share your pictures and protect them, however it has a problem that you need a server to run the service,even though you can use 七牛云,alioss,weibo for free.

why

Chevereto is aim what I find

  • dockerhub has chevereto images
  • Combined with ShareX (only for windows😢),chevereto can write markdown essay easily
  • it has api ,you can make it stronger
  • Chevereto Free v1.2.2 now
  • Something others you can discover by yourself

You maybe run into a stone wall when you first visit 127.0.0.1:8000

  • Before you can use docker exec -it chevereto bash into container /var/www/html

  • no permission write phots to /home/xxx/images,you can use chmod -R 777 /home/xxx/images

  • no permission update chevereto from 1.1.4 to1.2.2 ,no update possible: /app/install/update/temp/ path,that is no temp folder in /app/install/update/ under version 1.2.0,you can mkdir temp and then chmod -R 777 ./temp and then refresh the webpage ,the prics bed will update successfully

So , you can use ip address to visit your chevereto . However , we usually use domain name such as example.com to visit web, a https isn ecessary as well

  • 1.Use aliyun to apply a free ssl license for a domain name such as pics.example.com
  • 2.Download pem and keys to your server and put it in nginx conf folder
  • 3.Use the conf as follows

proxy_temp_file_write_size 64k;

}
    1. And then you can visit https://pics.example.com
