Another week, another file hosting web application. This time it's linx-server, an app written in Go that has several things going for it. For starters, linx-server can handle mixed content: besides images, it can be used to host videos and publish text snippets. And since the app supports syntax highlighting for many popular languages, you can enlist it for pastebin duties.

When adding content, you can enable the expiration option for each item, so the files are automatically removed after a specified period of time. linx-server supports a handful of configuration options, and you can tweak the app's basic settings such as port, site name, directory for storing files, maximum upload size, etc. The app is distributed as a single binary file, so it requires no installation. Grab the latest release of linx-server from the project's GitHub repository, unpack the downloaded archive, and run the binary file from the command line.
