The Pastebin desktop client offers a quick way to send text and individual code files to pastebin.com but when it’s required to send selected lines of code from software IDE, like from Visual Studio to pastebin.com, copying code manually to pastebin desktop client is not only time wasting but wearisome task as well. Send to PasteBin is a Pastebin add-in for Visual Studio 2010 that allows you to instantly send selected lines of code to pastebin.com from within the Visual Studio interface. Unlike other Pastebin clients, it lets you select text format and number of days after which copied text/code will expire. Additionally, you can send the code directly to your pasteboard or choose to send it to Pastebin anonymously.
Before installing the add-in, make sure that Visual Studio is not running in the background. Run the VSIX file to begin installation. Once installed, you can access Send to PasteBin option from Tools menu.
Select the code which you want to copy to PasteBin and click Send to PasteBin option. The Send to PasteBin window allows you to add title, format, and expiration days for the text. Before clicking OK, you need to specify pastebin API from Setting window. Once verified, you can post the text anonymously or by your account name.
When text has been uploaded, it will open the shareable link of code in your default browser.
Send to PasteBin works on Visual Studio 2010.
