Haste Client

Build Status

haste-client is a simple client for uploading data to haste-server. All you do it pipe data in STDIN:

cat file | haste

And once the output makes it to the server, it will print the URL to STDOUT.

This can be really really cool in combination with pbcopy, like:

  • mac osx: cat file | haste | pbcopy
  • linux: cat file | haste | xsel

after which the contents of file will be accessible at a URL which has been copied to your pasteboard.

Installation

gem install haste

Making uploading file contents easier

If you supply a valid file path as argument #1 to the client, it will be uploaded:

# equivalent
cat file | haste
haste file

You can get the raw version

Want the raw URL returned instead? (a plain-text version)?

cat file | haste --raw # or
haste file --raw

Changing the location of your haste server

By default, haste will point at http://hastebin.com. You can change this by setting the value of ENV['HASTE_SERVER'] to the URL of your haste server. You can also use alias to make easy shortcuts if you commonly use a few hastes intermingled with each other. To do that, you'd put something like this into ~.bash_profile:

alias work_haste="HASTE_SERVER=http://something.com haste"

After which you can use work_haste to send hastes to that server instead.

Use as a library

You can also use Haste as a library to upload hastes:

require 'haste'
uploader = Haste::Uploader.new
uploader.upload_raw 'this is my data' # key
uploader.upload_path '/tmp/whaaaa' # key

Windows Support

If you'd like an alternative on Windows that supports functionality similar to pbcopy, check out Aidan Ryan's WinHaste project.

Lightweight Alternative

Han Boetes and @nickthename have contributed a simple shell-script alternative for those not interested in installing a RubyGem:

haste() { a=$(cat); curl -X POST -s -d "$a" http://hastebin.com/documents | awk -F '"' '{print "http://hastebin.com/"$4}'; }

Usage:

cat file.txt | haste
