BD-incollo is a collaborative debugging tool like pastebin but written using Django.

Why did I write another pastebin clone?
Pastebin is (sometimes) slow, and I’m not (yet) interested to categorize pastes or to associate them to a user. Pastebin is free and the code is available, but is a single php file, and not a Django project!
There are already other services there, even written using Django, but no one is free software. BD-incollo IS free software. Well, BD-incollo has been written after those Django pastebin clones, so i could learn from their mistakes and write a better one! Everybody is welcome to grab the code and modify it, or even to submit suggestions!

  • Copy, Paste and store a text / source code to the system

  • NEW! Antispam protection using Akismet and by Michael Foord
  • Download it as plain text
  • View it as plain text

  • Report abuses to site admins

Interesting Stuffs

  • Fast, really fast!
  • It works well and has nice urls, thanks to Django
  • A very clean interface, a minimalist design that gives space to the code (as it should always be)
  • Compatible with every browser (tested with Internet Explorer 6,7,8, Mozilla Firefox 3, Apple Safari, Google Chrome)
  • Resolution friendly! Liquid design that adapts to every monitor resolution (tests from 1024×768)
  • Developer friendly! Every functionality of BD-incollo can be done with max 2 mouse clicks and without a mouse scroll!
  • Tested with lots of pastes, quite every source code should be perfectly viewed (this does not happen with every pastebin clones I’ve tried)
  • Uses Pygments for code highlighting
