Command line interface for Pastebin.com.
Just another Pastebin.com CLI script, but you can even login with your user account.
The project outlines as described in my blog post about Open Source Software Collaboration.
- The main purpose of this software is to provide a command-line interface to pastebin.com.
- The features should not go beyond pastebin.com's features and functions. So the features of this software are limited to those of pastebin.com.
- This list is open. Feel free to request features.
The preferred method of installation is via RubyGems.org:
gem install thefox-pastebin
gem 'thefox-pastebin', '~>1.2'
Use it in your sources:
Unless you are using
-f the default input is STDIN.
The default settings file is under
~/.pastebinrc. You need to create it by yourself.
Create a settings file
pastebin --skel > ~/.pastebinrc
Print default settings
Use a different settings file
pastebin -c ~/.pastebinrc_user2
Set a name for a paste
pastebin -n 'hello world'
Set an expiration date for a paste (10 minutes)
pastebin -e 10m
Set a format/language for a paste (PHP)
pastebin -l php
Paste a specific file
pastebin -f file.txt
Create an unlisted paste
Create a private paste
Get the raw contents of a paste
pastebin -r <ID>
As a registered pastebin.com user you can login and let
pastebin create pastes on behalf of you. You need to enter your username and password. The login credentials are not stored to any configuration file or anywhere else.
After a successfull login you need to add the
API_USER_KEY= line to your settings file (
~/.pastebinrc). This user key is associated to your pastebin.com user.
You can also use your own Developer API Key. See pastebin.com API documentation for more details.
