You upload a source file that contains content in one of the supported formats. The uploaded content is converted to HTML, unless it's already in HTML source code which in that case it's used as is. Then, the view page will display the HTML representation of the uploaded content.
Yes! I started with Markdown because it's popular, and the one I mostly use. Asciidoc was added soon after that, but I want to keep adding more formats, and maybe open source the converters so that people can contribute as well.
Along with the source file, you select an expiration for the content. This means that after the selected period the content will not be available to view, and the server will return
404 Not found. Expired objects may still be accessible a few minutes, or in some cases hours, after their designated expiration period. However, you should not take that for granted and only expect the object to be available for the selected duration.
However, I explicitly provide the single-file restriction to avoid this becoming a hosting service. If your static website is more complicated I suggest using Netlify.com or Vercel.com.
At the moment, any data that is considered private and would be dangerous to be seen by public eyes should not be stored on Minibri Temp. Even though it would be very hard to guess the URL of your content intentionally, anyone that visits the link of your content will be able to see it.

The uploaded data are encrypted at rest by Amazon S3. All data transfers between the server and Amazon S3, but also between the server and your browser, always use HTTPS. Having said that, you should not use this service to store private sensitive information like your social security numbers, your credit card numbers, or your bank account details.
