Haste

A walk through of installing haste as an open source federated pastebin.com alternative.

See the project at hastebin.com

I ran into project this while following John Kulp’s notes on his blather intro.

Installing node.js

Installing via a package manager. See nodejs website for most up-to-date information. Commands given below are just for reference.

RedHat based systems

curl --silent --location https://rpm.nodesource.com/setup | sudo bash -
sudo yum install -y nodejs

Debian based systems

curl --silent --location https://deb.nodesource.com/setup | sudo bash -
sudo apt-get install -y nodejs

Upgrade npm

npm install npm -g

haste-server

Take a look at the haste-server project on github

Clone haste-server git repository

git clone https://github.com/seejohnrun/haste-server.git
cd haste-server

Choose storage method

Choices

  • file system
  • redis
  • memcached

If you will be using the file system storage method, delete storage section in config.js using your favorite text editor.

Install

npm install
npm start &

Use server

You can now browse to your new haste-server at the server name or ip at port 7777. Follow the icon links on the page for usage.

http://<servername>:7777

Using shell to add content

Create a bash alias to pipe files to the haste file server.

Add the following to your .bashrc file:

HASTE_SERVER='http://myserver:7777'
haste() { a=$(cat); curl -X POST -s -d "$a" $HASTE_SERVER/documents | awk -v server="$HASTE_SERVER" -F '"' '{print server"/"$4}'; }
