An alternative frontend for Imgur. Based on rimgu and rewritten in Go.

License: AGPLv3 Matrix CI

It's read-only and works without JavaScript. Images and albums can be viewed without wasting resources from downloading and running tracking scripts. No sign-up nags.


  • URL-compatible with - just replace the domain in the URL
  • Images and videos (gifv, mp4)
  • Galleries with comments
  • Albums
  • User page
  • Tag page
  • Bandwidth efficient - automatically use WebP with the FORCE_WEBP environment variable

Some things left to implement (contributions welcome!):

  • Streaming (currently media is downloaded in full in rimgu before it's returned)
  • Localization/internationalization
  • Pretty CSS styling (responsive?)
  • Support for other popular image sites
  • Filtering and exploration on user/tags pages
  • Responsive scaling of videos on user/tags pages
  • Logo

Things that are considered out of scope:

  • Uploading, commenting, voting, etc - rimgo is read-only.
  • Authentication, serving HTTPS, rate limiting, etc - Use a reverse proxy or load balancer like Caddy, Traefik, or NGINX.
  • Anything requiring JavaScript or the client directly interacting with upstream servers.
