Over the weekend i made a simple read-only frontend for Imgur in the spirit of Invidio.us and nitter
Here is an example gallery view https://imgin.voidnet.tech/gallery/9wkPUsZ
The reason i made it is because for me, at least on desktop Imgur craps out on Tor Browser even just for viewing. You can append /layout/blog to albums but that still requires JS. Imgur also has lots of trackers and junk by default.
I still need to add tests and clean up the code, so it may be buggy. The idea is that it would be eventually added to privacy redirect addon to auto-redirect imgur links.
It is pretty small Python code so if you want to help me you can reach out.
Sopuli isn’t syncing comments for some reason, i’ll reply from onionr https://lemmy.ml/u/onionr
Privacy has become a very important issue in modern society, with companies and governments constantly abusing their power, more and more people are waking up to the importance of digital privacy.
In this community everyone is welcome to post links and discuss topics related to privacy.
much thanks to @gary_host_laptop for the logo design :)
Is the project still alive, @email@example.com?
Thanks for making this. Really great.
Was just looking something like this the other day! Amazing :)
Thanks for informing about this project!

Will this also support the “main page” feed?
This is the author (See my edit bc of an issue with sopuli): Maybe if there is enough demand i’ll get to it eventually (or accept a PR). I want to support things like image descriptions, gifs, and comments first.
Thanks. Maybe I don’t understand imgur enough. How are you using imgin now? How do you (as a user of imgin) discover the url of galleries? With regular imgur?
So at first i got frustrated with comments on reddit and such linking to imgur pages (non-direct images such as albums or gifs), which were broken on Tor and in browsers where they work just laggy and privacy invasive. I think you’re right that main page would be a good feature, i don’t intend on fully replicating all functionality though.
Looks like very promising project, especially for those having any issues with Imgur. I will definitely spread the word.
