#6356 new plugin request

Pastebin Plugin (for IRC)

Reported by: Cube Owned by:
Milestone: Plugin Suggested Component: plugins
Version: 2.4.3 Keywords: pastebin, irc, upload, text, plugin, chatbar, pastebin
Cc: elb, elreydetodo, brian_j_murrell, mcepl

Description

It would be very handy if one would be able to click on a button (perhaps next to formatting and these buttons) in a chat window so that another window comes up, where you can now paste in some text and click upload.

The link now appears in your chatbar, so that you can add some words and press send. (An alternative would be that it goes to your clipboard).

It would be also nice if you could choose from different pastebin providers, but that's really a minor issue.

I don't see why this would be irc specific, it could be used on any protocol.

Actually, it could be completely automatic. If you paste more stuff in the input box than “allowed” (configurable), the plugin would snatch the content post it to a pastebin (configurable) and replace your text with the URL.
