Stikked – a self-hosted open source alternative to Pastebin


Ever wanted to share or loosely collaborate on a document, but did not feel save enough to put it on a public text hosting service like Pastebin?

Thanks to Ben McRedmond and Claude Hole, there is Stikked. It is a small text pasting script. It needs a webserver with PHP 5 and a MySQL database. Installation is manual, but easy and well documented.

Many, but not too many options allow fast tailoring (URI scheme, allow paste listings, syntax highlighting) for your needs. Pastes support responses for collaborative version tennis, for when Git is overkill or not available.
