Using bepasty with non-web clients

pastebinit

pastebinit is a popular pastebin client (included in debian, ubuntu and maybe elsewhere) that can be configured to work with bepasty:

Configuration

~/.pastebinit.xml:

<pastebinit>
    <pastebin>https://bepasty.example.org</pastebin>
    <format></format>
</pastebinit>

Notes:

  • we set an empty default format so pastebinit will transmit this (and not its internal format default [which is "text" and completely useless for us as it is not a valid contenttype])

~/.pastebin.d/bepasty.conf:

[pastebin]
basename = bepasty.example.org
regexp = https://bepasty.example.org

[format]
content = text
title = filename
format = contenttype
page = page
password = token

[defaults]
page = +upload

Usage

Simplest:

echo "test" | pastebinit

More advanced:

# give title (filename), password, input file
pastebinit -t example.py -p yourpassword -i example.py

# read from stdin, give title (filename), give format (contenttype)
cat README | pastebinit -t README -f text/plain

Notes:

  • we use -t ("title") to transmit the desired filename (we do not have a "title", but the filename that is used for downloading the pastebin is prominently displayed above the content, so can be considered as title also).
  • bepasty guesses the contenttype from the filename given with -t. if you do not give a filename there or the contenttype is not guessable from it, you may need to give -f also (e.g. -f text/plain).
  • if you give the contenttype, but not the filename, bepasty will make up a filename.
  • you need to use -p if the bepasty instance you use requires you to log in before you can create pastebins.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
