The pasterd tool is a simple paste hosting service

The paster project is yet another web service for hosting code snippets. It started as an experiment of developing a web application in C++ using Boost.Beast library. The result was quite surprising, in average of 1000 LOC of C++ the server is up and running serving pastes and allowing creation of new ones. This does not mean that pasterd is a pet project, it has been designed to be secure, fast, and simple.


The additional paster tool included can be used to paste code from the command line without dealing with the web page. It is also written in C++ using Boost.Beast library and perform simple HTTP request.


Following the UNIX philosophy, pasterd does not come with configuration files, multiple database backends or authentication.
