We wanted to build something that would be useful for us and our friends. I noticed that whenever I wanted a shareable URL of an image, I would send it to Yash on discord and copy image URL, basically using discord as our image hosting service. So for the redis hackathon, inspired by a service called tixte, we decided to build a completely free and open source alternative
But where do we store images?
You guessed it - discord itself. We use discord's API to upload images to a discord channel and then use the URL of the image to display it on our website. This way, we don't have to worry about hosting and hence the "Unlimited" image hosting.
But we later realised that it's against discord's TOS to use their API for this purpose. So, we tried to find another hosting service so that we could just keep the project going.
The thing is - all the services are, obviously, paid. So the project was archived on github and now only the "outer layer" of the project is available. We use another service to host our images now, just for the sake of keeping the project alive.
