Pastebin Firefox extension

by on Jan.12, 2009, under Programming, reviews, System Administration

My friend James Ronan has just released a Pastebin Firefox extension, making it even easier to paste code etc to pastebin.com.

As the code by Paul Dixon which powers pastebin.com is Open Source and can be installed on your own server, the extension allows you to provide the URL of your own private pastebin install if you have one – this is ideal for me, as we have a private pastebin setup at work which is often used.

Using the extension is as simple as right clicking and chosing “pastebin my clipboard”, which submits the contents of your clipboard (or highlight buffer) to pastebin, and copies the resulting URL to the clipboard, ready for you to paste on IRC / IM / whatever.

See it in action:

pastebin-context-menu

pastebin-pasted

pastebin-options

If you try out the plugin, please do leave a rating & comments over on the Pastebin Firefox extension addons.mozilla.org page.
