The pastie bot can be found on freenode in #rubyonrails or #ruby-lang. Obtaining a paste URL is easy.
Pastie now supports a wide selection of fonts, although some will only appear if you actually have them installed on your computer. If a font is detected then it will be listed in the font dropdown.
Think a really good font is missing? Let us know at @pastieorg.
Pastie.settings.set("customfont", "Marker Felt")
You can divide your paste into different sections by separating them with ## lines as shown below.
## controller.rb controller code here ## model.rb model code here
When pastie sees this he'll turn each of your ## lines into separate headings and each section will have it's own line numbering.
Creating just one section can effectively title your paste.
You can specify a different language for each section by using it's short name.
## readme.txt [plain_text] Once upon a time in a galaxy far, far away... ## fixes.diff [diff] bug fixes go here
Currently supported languages (and short names):
Pastie listens for things like the following in channel:
They key is address someone (eg: “Dreamer3:”) and mention “pastie me|us|that”. The person you address will receive a private message telling them you'd like them to paste something.
Example: “Dreamer3 is requesting a paste from you. Click the link and paste away: http://pastie.caboo.se/paste/3432”
When they complete their paste the channel is notified, as usual.
Pastie can work with most popular text editors - usually by just installing a plugin.
