pastebin is a self-hosted pastebin web app that lets you create and share "ephemeral" data between devices and users. There is a configurable expiry (TTL) afterwhich the paste expires and is purged. There is also a handy CLI for interacting with the service in a easy way or you can also use curl!
$ go get git.mills.io/prologic/pastebin/...
Create a paste:
$ echo "Hello World" | pb http://localhost:8000/92sHUeGPfoFctazBxdEhae
Or use the Web UI: http://localhost:8000/
$ echo "Hello World" | curl -q -L --form blob='<-' -o - http://localhost:8000/ ...
There is also an included command line utility for convenience:
echo hello | pb
When running the
pastebin server there are a few default options you might
want to tweak:
$ ./pastebin --help ... -expiry duration expiry time for pastes (default 5m0s) -fqdn string FQDN for public access (default "localhost")
Setting a custom
-expiry lets you change when pastes are automatically
expired (the purge time is 2x this value). The ``-fqdn` option is used as
a namespace for generating the UUID(s) for pastes, change this to be your
The command-line utility by default talk to http://localhost:8000 which can be
changed via the
-url option or by creating a
configuration file with contents similar to:
$ cat ~/.pastebin.conf url=https://paste.mydomain.com/
