This is a simple telnet-based interface for publishing text. Users connect and paste / type what they want to publish. Upon indicating that they're finished, a link is generated to access their new post on the web.
Run it yourself
Usage: nerds [options] Options: --debug Enables garrulous debug logging. -o Directory where text files will be stored. -s Directory where required static files exist (like the banner). -h Hostname of the server to rsync saved files to. -p Port to listen on.
The default configuration (without any flags) is essentially:
nerds -o /var/write -s . -p 2323
How it works
The user's input is simply written to a flat file in a given directory. To provide web access, a web server (sold separately) serves all files in this directory as
plain/text. That's it!
