not-server is a set of scripts that gives you the ability to network install to Tinfoil/SX Installer from a remote location.



  • Can be set up in ~5 minutes
  • Does not use significant local space
  • Does not require FUSE support or root access (see FAQ)
  • Password protected, (semi-anonymized) logging enabled


  • Bandwidth (Traffic generated will be 2x the content size)
  • A local or remote copy of content on a supported backend (ie. Google Drive)
  • SSH access to the server you will host on
  • BASIC command line skills - current script supports Linux and macOS


  • Download and install Tinfoil or SX Installer
  • Download not-server
    • Run git clone && cd not-server
    • alternative, manual version: wget && unzip && rm && cd not-server
    • If the below commands error out, you’ll need to run chmod +x {script}.sh
  • Run for one time setup
  • Run to start not-server
  • Configure a new network location via locations.conf (for Tinfoil) or directly on your Switch (for SX Installer)
  • Download and install content
  • Run to stop not-server

locations.conf example

		"title": "Base",
		"url": "http://hostname:port/base/",

SX installer example

Protocol - http

I don’t have root, this won’t work!

That’s not a question. The script can accommodate rclone and caddy executables placed in the same folder. If you don’t have root, you’ll need to manually download, unzip, and make executable those two programs. For example, on Linux it’d look something like:

caddy -

wget "" -O caddy.tar.gz
tar -xvf caddy.tar.gz caddy && rm caddy.tar.gz && chmod +x caddy

rclone -

wget "" -O
unzip rclone-v1.46-linux-amd64/rclone
mv rclone-v1.46-linux-amd64/rclone . && rmdir rclone-v1.46-linux-amd64/
chmod +x rclone

How do I get a nice URL instead of an IP address?

Use a free DDNS (dynamic DNS) provider (no-ip, Duck DNS, Dynu) or your own domain and set it as the hostname (first line) in the Caddyfile.

How do I allow multiple users, each with a unique login?

You’ll need to append additional lines with a format of basicauth / {USER} {PASS} to the Caddyfile. Read this for more details.

Why and how did you make this?

Why not? Made with rclone + caddy

Why isn’t there a Windows version?

Lack of personal interest. Pull Requests are welcome for a Batch or PowerShell version. A simple alternative is to run both rclone and caddy as Windows services, using something like NSSM and pulling the required parameters for rclone/caddy from
