Sharing code is a good thing, and it should be really easy to do it. A lot of times, I want to show you something I'm seeing - and that's where we use pastebins.
Haste is the prettiest, easist to use pastebin ever made.
Type what you want me to see, click "Save", and then copy the URL. Send that URL to someone and they'll see what you see.
To make a new entry, click "New" (or type 'control + n')
From the Console
Most of the time I want to show you some text, its coming from my current console session. We should make it really easy to take code from the console and send it to people.
cat something | haste # http://hastebin.com/1238193
You can even take this a step further, and cut out the last step of copying the URL with:
cat something | haste | pbcopy
cat something | haste | xsel
After running that, the STDOUT output of
cat something will show up at a URL which has
been conveniently copied to your clipboard.
That's all there is to that, and you can install it with
gem install haste right now.
- osx: you will need to have an up to date version of Xcode
- linux: you will need to have rubygems and ruby-devel installed
Pastes will stay for 30 days from their last view.
While the contents of hastebin.com are not directly crawled by any search robot that obeys "robots.txt", there should be no great expectation of privacy. Post things at your own risk. Not responsible for any loss of data or removed pastes.
Haste can easily be installed behind your network, and its all open source!
