In nautilus there is nautilus-pastebin.

nautilus-pastebin is a Nautilus extension written in Python, which allows users to upload text-only files to a pastebin service just by right-clicking on them.


Is there any such feature in elementary OS?


Nautilus and Files do not share any code. Any extensions written for Nautilus are not compatible with Files.

There is a package called "webcontracts" that provides Pastebin through a system service called Contractor among other things. You can download a .deb from the link or install through the unstable daily PPA.

  • The status of webcontracts is in development, can I install it? If so, how to install? will you please add to your answer. :)

    @Ravan You can do whatever you'd like :p Keep in mind that nobody has touched this code since 2012 though. It's more a proof of concept than anything. Jan 3 '16 at 2:28
