PBinCLI

PBinCLI is a command line client for PrivateBin written in Python 3.

Installation

pip3 install pbincli

Usage

PBinCLI tool is started with pbincli command. Detailed help on command usage is provided with -h option:

pbincli {send|get|delete} -h

Sending

  • Sending text:
pbincli send -t "Hello! This is a test paste!"
  • Using stdin input to read text into a paste:
pbincli send - <<EOF
Hello! This is a test paste!
EOF
  • Sending a file with text attached into a paste:
pbincli send -f info.pdf -t "I'm sending my document."
  • Sending a file only with no text attached:
pbincli send -q -f info.pdf

Other options

It is also possible to set-up paste parameters such as "burn after reading", expiritaion time, formatting, enabling discussions and changing compression algorithm. Please refer to pbincli send -h output for more information.

Receiving

To retrieve a paste from a server, you need to use get command with the paste info.

Paste info must be formated as pasteID#Passphrase or just use full URL to a paste. Example:

pbincli get "xxx#yyy"                        ### receive paste xxx from https://paste.i2pd.xyz/ by default
pbincli get "https://example.com/?xxx#yyy"   ### receive paste xxx from https://example.com/

Deletion

To delete a paste from a server, use delete command with paste info:

pbincli delete "pasteid=xxx&deletetoken=yyy"                        ### delete paste xxx from https://paste.i2pd.xyz/ by default
pbincli delete "https://example.com/?pasteid=xxx&deletetoken=yyy"   ### delete paste xxx from https://example.com/

If you need to delete a paste on different server than the configured one, use -s option together with the instance URL.

Additional examples

Here you can find additional examples.

Usage with I2P enabled services

Change settings to set server to http://privatebin.i2p/ and proxy to http://127.0.0.1:4444. Configuration file for this example is:

server=http://privatebin.i2p/
proxy=http://127.0.0.1:4444

Using aliases

Example of alias to send a paste from stdin direclty to I2P service:

alias pastei2p="echo 'paste the text to stdin' && pbincli send -s http://privatebin.i2p/ -x http://127.0.0.1:4444 -"

Call it by running pastei2p in terminal.
