nopaste - command-line interface to

This is a simple script to facilitate sharing text through Like most UNIX utilities, it can take stdin or files on the command-line. Additionally nopaste can use the X cut buffer for input, designed to be used with a window-manager key binding or panel launcher.

The resulting URLs are printed to stdout and additionally placed in the X cut buffer for quick pasting.

Nopaste originally used the paste server at, but it's been disabled since May 2009, so the script uses since version 2.0. In February 2010 was overhauled so nopaste 3.0 uses the new API.
