<h1>Welcome to Post-it!</h1>
<p>Post-it is a tiny file sharing server for small files with limited lifespan.</p>
<h2>API quickstart</h2>
<h3>Submit a file: POST binary body to "/"</h3>
<li>Accepts <code>X-Expire</code> (secs) and <code>Content-Type</code> headers.
<li>Also accepts an <code>expire</code> URL param.
<li>Returns a secret token in the <code>X-Secret</code> header, and a File ID in response body.
<h3>Read a file: GET /&lt;file-id&gt;</h3>
<li>The remaining lifespan us returned in an <code>X-Expire</code> header (secs).
<h3>Update a file: PUT to /&lt;file-id&gt;</h3>
<li>Accepts the same headers and params as POST.
<li>Body may be left empty to leave it unchanged.
<li>File's lifespan can be extended by setting a new expiration time.
<li>Requires the secret token as an <code>X-Secret</code> header or a <code>secret</code> URL param.
<h3>Delete a file: DELETE /&lt;file-id&gt;</h3>
<li>The secret token is required, like with PUT.
<p>See the git repository for a more detailed README.</p>
<h2>Source code</h2>
<p>Post-it is written in Rust.</p>
