Overview

pb
is a lightweight pastebin and url shortener built using
flask 
_.

There is currently no known general-purpose public pb deployment. See

#246
_ for details.

Features

  • full paste and short-url CRUD
  • private pastes
  • tweakable syntax highlighting
  • terminal recording playback
  • markup rendering

Suggested versions

  • python >= 3.6
  • mongodb >= 3.2
  • docker >= 17.04

Development

pb comes with a

Dockerfile
and
docker-compose.yaml
to start development environments easily. Refer to relevant documentation for how to install
docker
and
docker-compose
.

start pb with::

docker-compose up

pb will be listening on

http://localhost:10002

Deployment

ptpb.pw (the reference deployment) uses

ptpb-deploy
_, which includes TLS termination, automatic x509 certificate rotation, and response caching.

For a simpler deployment, the included

Dockerfile
and
docker-compose.yaml
can be used verbatim, and are easy to read/study.

Other best practices include:

  • not using a shared/system python, when this is shared with packages other than pb

    • using site-packages is fine/preferred inside a container or isolated filesystem, otherwise use
      venv
      
      _
    • if you need/want a version of python other than what your distribution packages,
      pyenv 
      _ is a good option
  • not using debian or centos

    • these provide severely outdated packages, and require additional work to compensate for this
