Pastebinit now in Debian

Thanks to Rolf Leggewie, Pastebinit 0.10 is now in Debian (unstable and testing) and has been synced in Intrepid.
I can now use the time I previously spent on packaging Pastebinit (not that much …) to actually work on it and add new pastebins.

For those of you who don’t know what Pastebinit is, here is the description taken from the Debian package :

pastebinit is a command-line tool to send data to a “pastebin”: a web site which allows its users to upload snippets of text for public viewing.

It can receive data from a pipe or from a file passed as argument.
It supports these pastebins:

  • http://*.pastebin.com
  • http://pastebin.mozilla.org
  • http://rafb.net
  • http://yourpaste.net
  • http://paste.ubuntu.com
  • http://*.paste.f-box.org
  • http://*.1t2.us
  • http://paste.stgraber.org

It’s a very useful tool on servers and I also use it a lot with thin clients to easily submit debugging informations.
Examples could be:
– pastebinit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
– ps aux | pastebinit –
– free | pastebinit -b http://paste.ubuntu.com –

Bugs can be reported on Launchpad
