Usage: catbox <command> [arguments] Commands: user [userhash] - Gets or sets current userhash. If you pass 'off' then it will make you anonymous file <filename(s)> - Uploads files to catbox.moe url <url(s)> - Uploads files from URLs to catbox.moe delete <filenames(s)> - Deletes files from catbox.moe. Requires userhash album - Album Managment usage, --usage, -h, --help - Prints this message version, -v, --version - Prints version
Setting a user hash allows you to later delete files that you no longer require hosted. Although if you’re looking to temporarily share a file, it may be best to use their litterbox.catbox.moe option which allows files to be deleted automatically anywhere between one hour to three days after posting.
Let’s say you have a folder with several items you want to share. This can be done in a single command:
catbox file SecretDocuments/*
The wildcard will grab all of the files in the directory, in order. It is also possible to pass multiple files individually. The resulting link URLs are supplied in the output.

It is with only a bit of hesitation that I write about Catbox, as the service is provided on the goodwill of an anonymous do-gooder who thanklessly keeps things running with over 200TB of bandwidth used monthly. So please be respectful of the filesizes that you upload. I know that automated uploads can be tempting to start dumping tons of content. Even a simple 3.5MB video file viewed by just two thousand people easily translates into ~7GB of content that their servers need to deliver.
