Is there an API endpoint to upload images to DEV.TO?

I'm continuing to work on dev.to.ol. Some of the future work is sort of clear to me, but I'm still missing a big piece of the puzzle.

How can I take the charts (images) generated by the rendering of the .Rmd, and submit them to dev.to?

I'm not spotting a POST or PUT method in the api docs. Have I overlooked something, or is it something that might be a future feature?

I actually want to know the answer to this too! (I came across this post when I googled it) any thoughts @ben ?

Thanks for the interest. In the end I was pretty sure it wasn't exposed outside the Dev.to editor interface, so I went with GitHub as the 'Image Host', as convoluted as that is: github.com/DaveParr/dev.to.ol/tree...

Interesting, that's actually really smart!

Yeah the way we do images has never lent itself to an api making much sense, but we’re re-organizing this and that may change in near future.
