README.md

imgin

A minimalist read-only Imgur proxy insipired by software like Invidious, Nitter, and Bibliogram. This service does not use the official Imgur API because I reject the notion that normal HTTP GET isn't a valid way to access a public website.

This project was started because Kevin Froman got fed up with Imgur breaking with Tor because of cow-dung JS.

Feature roadmap

Features are in order of priority of most to least

  • Image proxying
  • Gallery/album proxying
  • Proper order of gallery posts
  • Image description and author info
  • Tor/SOCKS support for block circumvention
  • GIFs/videos (For now use youtube-dl)
  • Localizable strings and translations
  • Comments... maybe
