In late 2007 Rodolfo Berrios started Chilean based image hosting service called Godlike. Godlike soon became popular with Chilean and Latin American blogs [2][3][4] and media.[5] The Godlike project was soon shut down due to the costs incurred from running the servers.[citation needed] On October 7, 2008 Rodolfo Berrios started the Chevereto community establishing the new project direction as an Open Source image hosting script called Chevereto.[6]

In February 2009 interest in Chevereto grew, mainly from web developers and bloggers.[7][8] This interests on Chevereto was recorded since December 2009 by the developer in a forum post on his community.[9] This popularity pushes the developer to host the project in a source code repository and since February 2009 all the Chevereto 1.X releases are hosted in Google Code.[10]

In April 4, 2010 the developer announce several changes in the Chevereto project being the most important the change to a proprietary license indicating that this change won't affect the currently released code and that the code won't be re-licensed. In this announcement the developer also states that the Chevereto project will migrate to English as the base language.[11] This announcement got mixed reactions but in overall the reception was good.

In June 14, 2011 Chevereto 2.0 was released among with its new website.[12][13]

In April 5, 2014 Chevereto 3.0 was officials released.[14][15]


In 2010 Chevereto was awarded as one of the 25 emerging scripts to watch by Hot Scripts.[16]


Chevereto releases don't have a particular codename release naming. The developer mostly uses personal references to name each release like pets or anything that he think that is worth.[citation needed] The complete list of commercial Chevereto features can be found on the Chevereto road map

Many security issues have been found for Chevereto 1.X. This vulnerabilities are related to Cross-site scripting, DDoS and other kinds of computing vulnerabilities related to web applications.[44][45][46] Since this vulnerabilities where reported when the Open Source releases where already discontinued,[42] the developer didn't issue any fix because 2.X was the newer version and that version wasn't affected.[47]

In June 15, 2011 Secureless published a vulnerability that affects Chevereto 2.0.[48] That very same day this vulnerability was patched in Chevereto 2.0.1.[49]
