bepasty is like a pastebin for all kinds of files (text, image, audio, video, documents, ..., binary).
The documentation is there: https://bepasty-server.readthedocs.org/en/latest/
- you can upload multiple files at once, simply by drag and drop
- after upload, you get a unique link to a view of each file
- on that view, we show actions you can do with the file, metadata of the file and, if possible, we also render the file contents
- if you uploaded multiple files, you can create a pastebin with the list of all these files - with a single click!
- Set an expiration date for your files
- Text files:
- we highlight all text file types supported by pygments (a lot!)
- we display line numbers
- we link from line numbers to their anchors, so you can easily get a link to a specific line
- Image files:
- we show the image (format support depends on browser)
- Audio and video files:
- we show the html5 player for it (format support depends on browser)
- we support linking to / redirecting to external URLs, you can use this as a link shortener (avoiding privacy / data protection issues that may exist with other link shorteners)
- we support rendering PDFs in your browser (if your browser is able to)
- Storage: we use a storage backend api, currently we have backends for:
- filesystem storage (just use a filesystem directory to store <uuid>.meta and <uuid>.data files)
- currently there are no other storage implementations in master branch and releases. The "ceph cluster" storage implementation has issues and currently lives in branch "ceph-storage" until these issues are fixed.
- Keeping some control:
- flexible permissions: create, read, delete, admin
- assign permissions to users of login secrets
- assign default permissions to not-logged-in users
- you can purge files from storage by age, inactivity, size, type, ...
- you can do consistency checks on the storage
