Features

  • Is very small
  • Entirely self-contained executable, MicroBin is a single file!
  • Animal names instead of random numbers for pasta identifiers (64 animals)
  • File uploads (eg. server.com/file/pig-dog-cat)
  • Raw text serving (eg. server.com/raw/pig-dog-cat)
  • URL shortening and redirection
  • QR code support
  • Very simple database (JSON + files) for portability, easy backups and integration
  • Listing and manually removing pastas (/pastalist)
  • Private and public, editable and final, automatically and never expiring pastas
  • Syntax highlighting
  • Automatic dark mode and custom styling support with very little CSS and only vanilla JS (see water.css)
  • Most of the above can be toggled on and off!

What is a "pasta" anyway?

In microbin, a pasta can be:

  • A text that you want to paste from one machine to another, eg. some code,
  • A file that you want to share, eg. a video that is too large for Discord, a zip with a code project in it or an image,
  • A URL redirect.

When is MicroBin useful?

You can use MicroBin

  • As a URL shortener/redirect service,
  • To send long texts to other people,
  • To send large files to other people,
  • To serve content on the web, eg. configuration files for testing, images, or any other file content using the Raw functionality,
  • To move files between your desktop and a server you access from the console,
  • As a "postbox" service where people can upload their files or texts, but they cannot see or remove what others sent you - just disable the pastalist page
  • To take notes! Simply create an editable pasta.

...and many other things, why not get creative?
