About Pastie

The paste site has been done before... so why Pastie?

  • Clean user interface with sensible defaults

    Need to nickname, describe, set tab settings and more? You'll have to look elsewhere. One text box, paste, done. Simple.

  • Solid Syntax Highlighting

    Thanks to robust grammar files, you'll find the best syntax support on the web. Go TextMate!

  • It's a Ruby on Rails application

    Isn't that reason enough? Fun.

  • Ruby on Rails specific keyword syntax highlighting

    acts_as_list, habtm, validates_presence_of, before_filter, redirect_to and friends are all highlighted. Smart.

  • IRC integration via the friendly “pastie” bot

    Provides logins to pastie, tags pastes with nickname and channel, and occasionally provides a bit of attitude. Unique.
