Forked from fpaste 5 years ago


fpaste is a command-line front-end for the Fedora Pastebin service at It allows easy uploading of multiple files, or of copy&pasted text from stdin, without requiring a web browser. A unique fpaste link is returned, which can then be given to others who are offering help.

[joeuser@localhost ~]$ fpaste /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf


  • PRIMARY: users don't like being flooded with large amounts of text, and encourage the use of pastebin sites & utilities instead.
  • A GUI browser like firefox might be inaccessible.
  • A TUI browser like lynx might be too cumbersome.
  • Multiple files can be fpasted.
  • It's often faster & more convenient to use the cli than to copy/paste in a browser's textarea.
  • Why not?
