SFMLUploads.org - Relaunch!
« on: October 08, 2012, 02:51:29 pm »
After quite a few ups and even more downs SFMLUploads is finally back online!

SFMLUploads.org was originally created by the user Haikarainen back in May 2011 but due to server issues the project had experienced some hiccups in the early days and then went offline in July 2012. As quite a few things have been uploaded to that site and linked to in this forum, I felt it was wrong to lead the project drop dead, thus I contacted Haikarainen and convinced him to let me host and maintain the website. So here we are with the relaunch of SFMLUploads!

All the files and user accounts have been successfully transferred over to the new host, thus you'll be able to log into your old account again to get access to your files.
If you don't remember your password you can contact me and I'll give you the opportunity to re-register.


SFMLUploads is aimed at developers using the SFML library, and it's main purpose is to serve those users with bandwidth for:
  • Project archives, allowed extensions are: .rar, .zip, .tar, .tar.gz, .tgz, .deb, .rpm, .7z, .xz, and .ace.
  • Code-snippets, syntax-highlighted code with support for 100+ languages, "fork"-able, meaning users can create other versions of it. Useful with debugging etc. Kind of like Pastebin.
  • Screenshots/images, allowed extensions are .jpg, .jpeg and .png. Primarily for screenshots, but other picture are allowed as well.
The main rule is: It HAS to have something to do with SFML, either if it's for a forum post where you seek help for debugging a problem related to/which uses SFML, or if it's download links for your awesome game on your personal blog or something, etc. You can read the full terms here; they also apply to the existing users and where introduced to not only protect me but also you.
Keep in mind that this service is not for project presentations, like the official wiki for SFML is, but it's a place to have your binaries, images, code fragments, etc for your project in a nice and easy manageable way.

If you notice any problems or have suggestions feel free to contact me or write them here for discussion.

I hope you like it - signup and enjoy! :)

Known Issues
  • The Facebook like button has been temporarily removed, since it caused the website to load extremely slow.

PS: This service is 100% free, if you feel like donating for the hosting cost then you can do this here. Thanks!

DNS issue has finally been resolved!

SFMLUploads can now be reached under https://legacy.sfmluploads.org/ and https://legacy.sfmluploads.org/ whereas the first one will automatically redirect to the second one.

There was a problem with the SQL queries which lead to different problems, one was for instance that you could not create a new pastie.
Those bugs have now been resolved!


If you experience any problems, please report them here. It's impossible for me to test everything to its last detail and since the code wasn't originally written by me, I can't connect all the dots yet.
In near future I might rewrite most of it and adapt it to a better style which should also be easier to maintain. ;)

Trying so very hard to finish at-least one project.

Watch out for the RAII police, they will get you.

Could not create a new pasty?! What kind of sick error is this!!
Is this some sort of joke I don't get, or do you really have problems with creating a code snippet? ???

You originally said "one was for instance that you could not create a new pasty." but you edited it now.

A pasty from where I am from is a type of food, which I linked in the image link..

tldr; it was a bad joke..

The following issues have been resolved:
  • A bug with the paths prevented the deletion of images.
  • There have been numerous errors with redirection, which also lead to unwanted results.
The following issue is known but does not influence the performance of the service.
  • The Facebook like button has been temporarily removed, since it caused the website to load extremely slow.

Nice1 for taking up the project for SFMLUploads, I use it all the time!
Glad to hear! :)
