A command line tool to easily share pastes and files.
Table of Contents
pystoreql (py-store-q-l) lets you share pastes, files and directories easily and let you choose the name (id) (could be easy to be remembered) for the paste/file/directory being shared. Everyone who has the id can download the paste/file/directory easily by typing a simple command (e.g., pystoreql get <id>) without opening a web browser. Read more below to find out how to use pystoreql.
- Anonymous sharing: No need to register to post, upload, download.
- Easy to use: Simply typing a command v.s. opening a web browser or using a graphic interface clients.
- Unlimited: In theory, there should be no limit on the number and the size of pastes or files you can share.
- Possible to host and use your own pystoreql server with the same command line interface like git.
- More features will be coming as users suggest.
- Writing tests
- Web interface (maybe)
- Better support for Windows and MacOS.
- Phone applications i.e., Android, iOS, … (unlikely)
You need python to run pystoreql. For Ubuntu users, it is simple as:
$ sudo apt-get install -y python python-pip
Alternatively, you can install Miniconda (a Python distribution): https://conda.io/miniconda.html
Then you can install pystoreql by using pip command:
In Ubuntu, without using sudo:
$ pip install --user pystoreql
Or if you have Miniconda:
$ pip install pystoreql
The two main sub-commands for paste sharing are post and get. To share a paste and assign it an id (e.g., your_wanted_id):
$ pystoreql post your_wanted_id "the paste string"
$ cat your_file.txt | pystoreql post your_wanted_id -
To retrieve a paste with a given id (e.g., the_id):
$ pystoreql get the_id
To retrieve a paste with a given id (e.g., the_id) and save it to a file (e.g., filename.txt)
$ pystoreql get the_id > filename.txt
The two main sub-commands for file and directory sharing are push and pull. To share a file or a directory and assign it an id (e.g., your_wanted_id):
$ pystoreql push your_wanted_id the_file_or_dir_path
To retrieve a file or a directory with a given id (e.g., the_id) to the current working directory:
$ pystoreql pull the_id
$ pystoreql --help Usage: pystoreql get <id> pystoreql post <id> <value> pystoreql pull <id> pystoreql push <id> <file_or_dir>
