App::Nopaste::Service - base class for nopaste services


version 1.013


    package App::Nopaste::Service::Shadowcat;
    use parent 'App::Nopaste::Service';
    sub uri { "" }


"App::Nopaste::Service" defines a generic interface for uploading to nopaste sites. It provides a default interface to that of the POE Pastebot.



This is the outermost method called by App::Nopaste and other clients. You should not override this method, as it will (XXX: eventually) perform canonicalization of arguments (such as "lang") for you.

run args -> (OK, message)

This is the outermost method you should override. You'll be passed a hash of arguments. The only arguments you should pay attention to are:

The body of text to paste.
A short (one-line) summary of the paste.
The name of the person performing the paste.
The IRC channel to which the paste belongs.
The programming language of the body of text.
If false, the paste will be public (default).

get mech, args

This should "get" the form to paste using the provided WWW::Mechanize object. By default it does just that. See "uri" below.


If you only need to call "mech->get(uri)" then you may define this method to provide the URI of the nopaste service.

fill_form mech, args

This should have the WWW::Mechanize fill in the form using the arguments, and submit it.

return mech, args

This should look at "WWW::Mechanize->content" to find the URI to the pasted text.


Bugs may be submitted through the RT bug tracker <> (or <>).
