During the past few months, I have often needed to share a small code snippet or other content that is impossible or impractical to paste into a tweet, blog comment or email. On several occasions, I created a temporary page on my blog or on one of my public servers. I also tried out a few services such as pastebin.com, txtb.in and snipt.org but all of these wrapped their own content around mine.
I decided to spend a few hours building a simple service for creating single page HTML content. I also integrated Alex Gorbatchev’s SyntaxHighlighter to make code look great.
Here’s an example that has some simple text combined with an ActionScript code snippet and a block of XML. – http://tblurb.com/Bfmb77 (sample of how to use LiveCycle Data Services data paging feature)
The service is free and now available for your use. There is no charge but I do reserve the right to eventually add some light-weight ads at the bottom of the page. Suggestions are welcomed.
Thank you Todd Williams for converting my terrible home-made 1996 UI design into something much better looking!
