a binary pastebin / file upload service

Project description

bepasty is like a pastebin for all kinds of files (text, image, audio, video, documents, …, binary).

The documentation is there:


  • Generic:

    • you can upload multiple files at once, simply by drag and drop

    • after upload, you get a unique link to a view of each file

    • on that view, we show actions you can do with the file, metadata of the file and, if possible, we also render the file contents

    • if you uploaded multiple files, you can create a pastebin with the list of all these files - with a single click!

    • Set an expiration date for your files

  • Text files:

    • we highlight all text file types supported by pygments (a lot!)

    • we display line numbers

    • we link from line numbers to their anchors, so you can easily get a link to a specific line

  • Image files:

    • we show the image (format support depends on browser)

    • for image list items, we can show a slide show (“carousel” view)

    • in the items list, a thumbnail of images is shown

  • Audio and video files:

    • we show the html5 player for it (format support depends on browser)

  • asciinema recordings:

    • we show the asciinema player for .cast files

  • URLs:

    • we support linking to / redirecting to external URLs, you can use this as a link shortener (avoiding privacy / data protection issues that may exist with other link shorteners)

  • PDFs:

    • we support rendering PDFs in your browser (if your browser is able to)

  • Storage: we use a storage backend api, currently we have backends for:

    • filesystem storage (just use a filesystem directory to store <uuid>.meta and <uuid>.data files)

    • currently there are no other storage implementations in master branch and releases. The “ceph cluster” storage implementation has issues and currently lives in branch “ceph-storage” until these issues are fixed.

  • Keeping some control:

    • flexible permissions: read, create, modify, delete, list, admin

    • assign permissions to users of login secrets

    • assign default permissions to not-logged-in users

    • you can purge files from storage by age, inactivity, size, type, …

    • you can do consistency checks on the storage
