A tool for pasting from the terminal.
bins is built with the latest Rust nightly. Other versions can be used, but your mileage may vary.
Don't want to install Rust? A precompiled binary may be available for your architecture at the latest release.
# If you don't have Rust installed: # curl https://sh.rustup.rs -sSf | sh cargo install bins
Building from source requires the nightly compiler!
Depending on the features of bins you have enabled, there are different requirements for building bins from source.
- xorg-dev on Linux
- No requirements
If you want to install the latest version from the repository:
git clone https://github.com/jkcclemens/bins cd bins # If you don't have Rust installed: # curl https://sh.rustup.rs -sSf | sh cargo install
$HOME/.cargo/bin to your
$PATH or move
To upgrade an existing installation from crates.io:
cargo install --force bins
To upgrade an existing installation from source:
cd bins git fetch origin && git reset --hard origin/master cargo install --force
To get help, use
bins -h. bins accepts a list of multiple files, a string, or piped data.
Take a look at some of the written examples below:
$ echo "testing123" | bins -b gist https://gist.github.com/fa772739e946eefdd082547ed1ec9d2c
Pasting a single file:
$ bins -b gist hello.c https://gist.github.com/215883b109a0047fe07f5ee229de6a51
bins supports pasting multiple files, too. With services such as GitHub's gist, these are natively supported. For services which don't support multiple file pastes, an index paste is created and returned which links to individual pastes for each file.
$ bins -b gist hello.c goodbye.c https://gist.github.com/anonymous/7348da5d3f1cd8134d7cd6ee1cf5e84d
By default, bins will use the
defaults.private option from the config file to determine whether or not to create a
private paste. The default value of this is
true - so new pastes will be private for a fresh install. You can override
this at the command line:
$ bins --public --bin gist hello.c https://gist.github.com/05285845622e5d6164f0d36b73685b19
Running bins at least once will generate a configuration file. Its location is dependent on the environment that bins is run in. The configuration file will be created at the first available location in the list below:
If none of these paths are available (
$HOME are either both unset or unwritable), bins will fail
and not generate a config file.
The configuration file is documented when it is generated, so check the file for configuration documentation.
