Mojopaste – A #pastebin based on #Mojolicious

5th of September, 2013

// From errno.h
#define EPASTEBINAGAIN 133 /* mojopaste */

Today I released my 13th Mojolicious based project to CPAN, but the 1st open source Mojolicious based application.

It feels good.

The application is a pastebin. That is a web application which you can paste text to, hit the “Paste” button and it will save it and generate a unique URL which you can share with other people.

Yes. A standard pastebin. So why?

There’s about 20 million pastebin search results on Google and there’s about 40 pastebin related modules on CPAN, but I don’t think there’s any Mojolicious based. So that’s why I wrote it: mojopaste is super easy to install, as long as you have perl from this century.

# install using cpanm
$ curl -L | perl - --sudo App::mojopaste

# run
$ PASTE_DIR=/path/to/paste/dir mojopaste daemon --listen http://*:8080

Who could be interested?

  • Maybe you have the need to run a pastebin internally at work.
  • You just fancy having your own pastebin.

Want to try it out? Check out mojopaste on my server.

What about the future: Version 0.04 will look better on the iPhone and will probably have different input names to make it a bit harder for robots to paste. Got other ideas for improvements? Comment below or contact batman @ (I’m usually in the #mojo channel)
