Eos-sendlog supports more pastebins

What

eos-sendlog received support for more pastebin like services today.

How was it implemented

The support was added by integrating the wgetpaste application into eos-sendlog. wgetpaste comes from an Arch package wgetpaste. Our integration uses a slightly modified package, wgetpaste-eos, which tries to use https instead of http if possible.
Note that you need to install wgetpaste-eos manually for it to work.

How to configure it

All in all, wgetpaste provides support for several different pastebin services. You can configure which one to use in file /etc/eos-sendlog.conf.

The following terminal commands provide help about wgetpaste:

  wgetpaste -h   # shows general usage help
  wgetpaste -S   # shows which pastebins are available

With the help of these commands you should be able to edit the mentioned config file (if needed).

Example

You might set the variables like this:

  # file: /etc/eos-sendlog.conf

  EOS_SENDLOG_URI=wgetpaste
  WGETPASTE_OPTIONS="--nick nobody --service bpaste"
