A tool for uploading to

Project Description

codepadr is an interface to upload things to

Installation & Requirements

To install codepadr, simply:

$ pip install codepadr

or, if you must:

$ easy_install codepadr

codepadr requires:

  • python 2.6+
  • requests

Example usage

codepadr is quite flexible in how you pass it code to upload:

$ codepad file.txt
$ codepad < file.txt
$ cat file.txt | codepad

You can specify that the paste should be private:

$ echo "psst, this is private" | codepad -p

You can specify the language of the paste (defaults to plain text):

$ echo "print 'hello world'" | codepad -l py

If you pass in a file, the language will be inferred from the file extension:

$ codepad script.rb

You can ask codepad the run the code:

$ codepad -r

And if you pass in -, it will read from stdin:

$ codepad -l py -r -
for i in xrange(25):
    print i**i


This project was inspired by Dalton Barreto’s codepad.
