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)
  • Audio and video files:
    • we show the html5 player for it (format support depends on browser)
  • 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: create, read, delete, 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


# Clone the official bepasty-server (or your fork, if you want to send PULL requests)
git clone
cd bepasty-server
# Create a new virtualenv
virtualenv ~/bepasty
# Activate the virtualenv
source ~/bepasty/bin/activate
# This will use the current directory for the installed package
# Very useful during development! It will also autoreload when files are changed
pip install -e .
# Run the bepasty-server in debug mode. The server is reachable in
bepasty-server --debug
