PasteDat is a peer-to-peer gist-like tool. It uses the Beaker browser's APIs to write files with the Dat protocol.

All file snippets created with PasteDat are hosted directly from your devic and on a peer-to-peer network, and only people who know the secret URL can discover and download the files. Learn more.

Install Beaker, then try it out at dat://43dfc9f23fdded8cc7c01c71c0702a0529130af0258e7fb30bf5a0a3f73d69b3
