IPFSBin is a pastebin application for sharing code and text documents to other people. It supports 81 languages and works even if you don't have access to the internet anymore.
When you first load the application, we download and store everything in the browser. Therefore a connection is not required to use IPFSBin after the initial load.

Raw mode/Plain text
If you want, you can work directly with plain text pastes instead of storing JSON objects. Try loading the IPFS security notes directly in IPFSBin: http://ipfsbin.xyz/#QmTumTjvcYCAvRRwQ8sDRxh8ezmrcr88YFU7iYNroGGTBZ
If you want to save your own plain text pastes, simply select the "Plain Text" mode and hit save.

Browser cached copy Visit ipfsbin.xyz in your favorite browser, and you have installed IPFSBin in that browser. If you clear the browser cache, you might lose it and it has to be cached again by being online and loading the page. If an update have been released and you're online, it will be installed when you reload the page. If you're offline, the old version will still work.
Offline: You can also run the application locally by cloning the project and start webserver of choice, serving the root folder.
npm run prod is a handy command for serving the applications folder with connect.
git clone https://github.com/VictorBjelkholm/ipfsbin.git cd ipfsbin npm install npm run prod # only needed on creation/update
Visit localhost:3000 to navigate to IPFSBin.
Hacking / Contributing
You wish to contribute a feature or fix an annoying bug? Follow the instructions about running offline, but instead of
npm run compile, run
npm run dev and go to (localhost:3000)[localhost:3000]. When in dev mode, it automatically runs a local IPFS daemon so no need to worry.
