SpammCan 0.2b

A simple pastbin built on TurboGears and Pygments.

General Information

SpammCan is yet another pastbin web application. It distinguishes itself from its competitors by the following features:

  • Has syntax highlighting support for over 100 languages thanks to the use of Pygments.

  • Is easy to install thanks to setuptools.

  • Uses large, random GUIDs for paste entries in its URLs instead of sequential paste numbers to discourage spammers.

    Also detects and rejects spamming attempts with the help of a SpamBayes filter.

  • Is built on TurboGears 1.1, Genshi, and SQLAlchemy.

  • Uses a SQLite database by default, but can use any database system supported by SQLAlchemy and TurboGears.
