This week's Tuesday Tooling is a terminal application that can save you time and sanity by sending text to a pastebin.
So what is it called?
Where can I find it?
Who made it?
What can I do with it?
- Share non sensitive data over the Internet.
- Send the output of a command / file to pastebin.
How can I install it?
On my Ubuntu test machine
sudo apt install pastebinit
How can I use it?
I'm in the terminal and I've just ran nmap to search the IP range for connected devices. (Okay I ran it last December on a site survey for a network that doesn't exist any more.)
I've got the information and I want to share it with a colleague.
$ less OSDETECT.txt | pastebinit
Or you can use...
$ pastebinit < OSDETECT.TXT
Which gives us the URL And when we go to the URL!
pastebinit is a really handy tool for sharing non sensitive data.
Thanks to (THE) Ben Nuttall for bringing this tool to my attention (somewhere in the depths of time he mentioned it)
