pastiche - An awfully simple pastebin.

Introduction

pastiche is a BSD licensed awful application providing a basic pastebin service. It has been named pastiche in honor of lisppaste where loads of ideas and the syntax highlighting (indirectly via the colorize egg has been borrowed).

Usage

After installation create and compile the following file:

(use awful pastiche)

(pastiche "/" "paste.db"
          awful-settings:
          (lambda (handler)
            (parameterize
                ((debug-file "/tmp/paste")
                 (page-css "http://wiki.call-cc.org/chicken.css")
                 (page-charset "UTF-8")
                 (page-doctype "<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC \"-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN\" \"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd\">"))
              (handler))))

load this then with awful

$ awful example-app.scm

Or compile it and load the compiled application:

$ csc -s awful-app.scm
$ awful example-app.so

This will run the pastebin service using call-cc.org's css look and feel on your host. Access http://localhost/ for your paste app.

Requirements

If you use captchas, the external program figlet must be installed. If you use audible-captchas, you will need espeak in pastiche's PATH.

Documentation

pastiche

[procedure] (pastiche base-path db-file #!key (vandusen-port 22722) (vandusen-host "localhost") (base-url "http://paste.call-cc.org") (use-captcha? #t) (audible-captcha? #t) (num-captchas 500) (browsing-steps 15) force-vandusen-notification? (awful-settings (lambda (_) (_))))

Starts pastiche with base-path as the root URL and the sqlite database file db-file. If the database file does not exist, pastiche will create and initialize an empty database.

It supports sending the paste event to the chicken IRC bot vandusen. The message contains of the author, the title of the paste and the url to the paste on one line.
