Pastebin Clients

Template:Wikipedia Pastebin services are often used to paste information into IRC channels to help with troubleshooting. There are services for both text (e.g. sprunge.org, pastie.org, codepad.org) and images (e.g. imgur.com, picpaste.com). Pastebin clients allow you to post directy from the cli without using a web browser.

Tip: The sprunge pastebin can be accessed directly via curl:
<command> | curl -F 'sprunge=<-' http://sprunge.us
There is also a sprunge plugin for oh-my-zsh (a configuration tool for the Zsh command shell).
Tip: Do not use pastebin.com. It appears to be the most popular site but it is slow, full of adverts, formats the text badly (it will mess up your code) and many people can not even open the site due to aggressive spam filters.
  • Curlpaste — A utility to post text files to a number of pastebin sites using curl and Lua. For usage instructions run: curlpaste -h. To change the defaults, edit /etc/curlpaste.conf. Servers: pastebin.ca, codepad.org, dpaste.com and fpaste.org.
