Project description

dpaste is a Django based pastebin. It’s intended to run separately but its also possible to be installed into an existing Django project like a regular app.

You can find a live example on

Testing and local development

dpaste is continuously tested on Travis. You can also run the test suite locally with tox:

$ cd dpaste/
$ pip install tox
$ tox

A more manual approach is installing it all by hand in a virtual environment. This is also the preferred way to setup an environment for local development:

$ cd dpaste/
$ pip install -e .
$ pip install -r requirements.txt
$ python

Integrate dpaste into an existing project

Dpaste needs at least Django 1.4+ and is tested on Python 2.7 as well as Python 3.3.

Install the latest dpaste release in your environment. This will install all necessary dependencies of dpaste as well:

pip install dpaste

Add dpaste and (preferred) south to your INSTALLED_APPS:

    # ...

    # 'south', (supported)

Add dpaste and if you want the dpaste_api to your urlpatterns:

urlpatterns = patterns('',
    # ...

    url(r'pastebin/', include('dpaste.urls.dpaste')),
    url(r'pastebin/api/', include('dpaste.urls.dpaste_api')),

Finally just syncdb or if you use South, migrate: migrate dpaste

Do not forget to setup a cron job to purge expired snippets. You need to run the management command cleanup_snippets. A cron job I use looks like:

30 * * * * /srv/ /srv/ cleanup_snippets > /dev/null

Note also that dpaste does not come with Django admin integration. You need to setup an register the models in an yourself.
