Pastie - Pastebin to Share Source Code with Syntax Highlighting

Pastie is a beautiful code sharing web application (aka pastebin) by Josh Goebel to share source code with syntax highlighting support. Pastie is a pastebin for coders to post code snippets. If you have some source code that you’d like to share with a friend or your client then all you need to do is open Pastie website, paste the source code that is already copied on your clipboard and click "Paste" button. Voila! Your source code is ready to be shared with anyone on the web. You can also choose the ’private’ option for source codes that are not to be shared with general public. In that case, you will get a private link which you can send to someone to view that private code snippet.

What is a Pastebin?

A pastebin is a web application which allows its users to upload snippets of text, usually samples of source code, for public viewing. A pastebin often has the capability to format and syntax highlighting the text for easier viewing. This benefits the users by letting them share code or text in a consistent and clean manner. In many cases, pastes made to pastebins are kept only for some time, usually a month. Although there are literally thousands of pastebins available, most have a common set of features. They may appear different or target a different user base, but at the core, they take an upload or text paste and provide a sharable HTTP URL which contains the body of text. Throughout the years, the number of languages and formatting styles has grown quickly as the Pastebin user base has grown.
