[nodebb-plugin-imgur] Imgur Plugin


  • @baris to be fair it seems to work just uploading images but when I was using a plugin from @Schamper which set avatars it always seemed to error out. (Only the imgur plugin though, not his).

    I'll give it a go with the updated dependencies.

  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    @baris @Chris to add to that, it's regarding setting a user avatar using a url.

  • NodeBB

    Took a look into this, it is caused by this change https://github.com/NodeBB/NodeBB/commit/969c3a77cf3eb3327402df731c9152ac8cd626e2.

    The plugins for filter:uploadImage doesn't send the passed in data as is but only returns an object that is {url: 'uploaded url', name: 'file name if any'} This is quite different than other plugins that pass back whatever is sent in. Obviously that doesn't work for upload plugins. For example you pass in a file object that points to a tmp file on disk and get back an url.

    I'll revert that change for now and use the correct data.url property.

  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    @baris I'm not even calling the hook directly, but piggybacking it from the user.uploadProfileImageFromUrl socket endpoint.

  • NodeBB

    Well SocketUser.uploadProfileImageFromUrl was crashing, it shouldn't crash now.


  • Is there any way to change this so this so the end result is simply a URL without all the markdown? When combined with the other image embed plugin there isnt a need for it, so it would be a bit cleaner looking to the end user. Thanks.


  • Updated to latest tonight and getting an error again. @baris was anything changed?

  • Anyone know if something was changed that would cause that error?

  • NodeBB

    Works for me on latest master with the 0.1.2 version of the plugin.


  • I tried installing this plugin today but I am getting this error as soon as I hit the install button:

    Failed to parse json Unexpected token <
    

    This is on NodeBB v0.5.7 hosted on nodebb.com

    EDIT: after upgrading to 0.6.0 it is working

  • NodeBB

    Updated to 1.0.0, switched to oauth and uploading to accounts/albums.


  • do images ever expire on imgur?

  • NodeBB

    I think they used to delete if the image was not accessed at least once every six months. But they changed it so they never delete an image unless requested.


  • @baris said:

    Can confirm. Imgur indeed doesn't delete unless requested. The screenshots I made and uploaded by ShareX from 3 months ago are still able to be seen.

    @donorom What version of the plugin?


  • This is a crazy contingency question; I doubt it'd ever happen but what if Imgur closed down and we were told to download our images from their server, could we dump them all into a folder on our own server and somehow get them to display?


  • @henrywright that is why I host images on my server. The other reason is that I can put the images through some software to make them smaller in kilobytes.


  • @prog I use Digital Ocean and storage seems to be 20GB on the plan I have. For 40GB I'd need to quadruple what I currently pay per month. I'd love to host images direct on my server but I can't afford it 😞


  • @prog also I think Imgur has a setting which allows images to be reduced in file size on upload which speeds up loading times
