Pastebin.com 4 Scala

Pastebin4scala is a complete Pastebin.com API wrapper written in Scala. You'll need a developer key in order to use the Pastebin API. You can find yours here afer creating a Pastebin account.


Overview

All user-relevant methods are contained in Pastebin and PastebinAccount classes. Pastebin, for "anonymous" API features and PastebinAccount for features that require authentication.

All methods within those classes return a result wrapped within a Try instance. This allows for clean and functional handling of successful and unsuccessful operations. Take for example, this block of code that uploads an authenticated paste

val pastebin = new Pastebin("developer_key")

pastebin.login("username", "password").flatMap(_.upload
(
  title = "A test paste.",
  content = "object Test { val example = 25 }",
  format = "scala"

)).foreach(it => println(s"Upload complete, link: $it"))

And the same code, using pattern matching to handle any exceptions that might have been thrown during the chain of operations

val pastebin = new Pastebin("developer_key")

pastebin.login("username", "password").flatMap(_.upload
(
  title = "A test paste.",
  content = "object Test { val example = 25 }",
  format = "scala"

)) match {
  case Success(it) => println(s"Upload complete, link: $it")
  
  case Failure(it) => handleErrorSomehow(it)
}

Deleting a paste and printing off an indication of that in just a few lines...

val pastebin = new Pastebin("your_developer_key")

pastebin.login("some_username", "some_password").flatMap(_.delete("aBcDeF")).foreach(it =>
    println(s"Paste $it successfully deleted."))

More examples of anonymous and authenticated Pastebin API features can be found here.
