Go Pasty!

Yesterday evening I wrote my first ever web app using Go. It’s called Go Pasty! and is essentially a pastebin clone with lesser options. If you haven’t used pastebin, the idea is to to have a shareable URL which contains code/text provided by the user. So for example, if you want to share some code, instead of emailing the other person you can put it on Go Pasty! and share the URL with them.

The implementation is pretty straightforward and involves only validating and saving the user input in persistent storage. When the user requests a URL, the code tries to fetch the corresponding text and displays it with syntax highlighting.

The syntax highlighting is done with SyntaxHighlighter Javascript library. The storage is done using the app engine datastore. The complete source code is present on github.
