Two new services on

Reading time: 2 – 3 minutes

Do not expect something exception, or may be anything that nobody else has. Both services are very common and widely available on Internet but I usually have issues when I try to use them.

This is the same reason because I created, my own short URL service. Maybe you are asking yourself about which are the next two service that I created for myself; but I exposed to everyone on the Internet.

Firstly I’m talking about a service that returns your public IP address mainly focused to be used from a shell console, but also available by web.

curl -L

And it only returns your IP address as a plain text, allowing you to do things so useful as assigning the IP address to a variable. Of course, if you access with your web browser is it going to work perfectly to.

Finally, I want to reference a file sharing service also oriented on being used in the console, but it works OK when you use the browser. IMHO, the WUI (Web User Interface) is too much basic and it will be nice if it was more basic user oriented. But the simplicity of the API is the most powerful value of this service and which it makes a Swiss knife in the console. I’m not going to say anything else about the service try it by yourself.

Feel free of sharing your comments with me, thank you for your feedback. BTW, I maintain those services for my private use and I make them available publicly without any kind of warranty.
