API Usage

Create a new paste

To create a new paste, send a POST request to /api/v1/secure-paste with a JSON body containing the data field. You can also include an optional expiry field to specify when the paste should expire.

curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d '{"data":"Hello, World!", "expiry":"2022-12-31 23:59:59"}' curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d '{"data":"Hello, World!", "expiry":"2022-12-31 23:59:59"}' http://localhost:5000/api/v1/secure-paste

The response will be a JSON object with a success field and, if the request was successful, an id field containing the id of the created paste.

Retrieve a paste

To retrieve a paste, send a GET request to /api/v1/secure-paste/{paste_id}, replacing {paste_id} with the id of the paste.

curl -X GET http://localhost:5000/api/v1/secure-paste/1234567890

The response will be the content of the paste if it exists and has not expired. If the paste does not exist or has expired, the response will be an error message.
