How to Roll Your Own Awesome Drag-and-Drop File Sharing Service

I use, but don’t really like, CloudApp to share files (mostly images). The desired solution is:

  1. Drag a file to an icon or something
  2. The file is uploaded somewhere that it can be linked to via URL (ideally at a domain I control)
  3. The URL goes on my clipboard and I can easily share it

If you pay for CloudApp, it does work with your own domain… but I kind of dislike having a third-party service for this at all.

The link above is to an old article from 2012, so there are almost certainly better solutions for self-hosting a file-linking thingamabob, but I’m bookmarking this as a start.
