Settings to overrideΒΆ

When dpaste is installed as a standalone service or integrated into an existing project there are various settings you can override to adjust dpaste’s behavior without touching the code:

DPASTE_SLUG_LENGTH
Integer. Length of the random slug for each new snippet. In the rare case an existing slug is generated again, the length will increase by one more character. Default: 4
DPASTE_SLUG_CHOICES
String. A string of characters which are used to create the random slug. Default: abcdefghijkmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ1234567890
DPASTE_LEXER_DEFAULT
String. The lexer key that is pre-selected in the dropdown. Note that this is only used if the user has not saved a snippet before, otherwise we use the last-used lexer. Default: python
DPASTE_MAX_CONTENT_LENGTH
Integer. Maximum number of bytes per snippet. Default: 250 * 1024 * 1024
DPASTE_MAX_SNIPPETS_PER_USER
Integer. Maximum number of snippets we save in teh user session and display on the history page. Default: 10
DPASTE_BASE_URL
String. The full qualified hostname and path to the dpaste instance. This is used to generate a link in the API response. Default: https://dpaste.de
DPASTE_SITE_NAME
String. Site name to display in page titles. Default: dpaste.de
DPASTE_LEXER_LIST

Choices. A tuple of choices of Pygments lexers used in the lexer dropdown. Here is the full lexer list which is currently used. Example:

DPASTE_LEXER_LIST = (
    ('delphi', 'Delphi'),
    ('php', 'PHP'),
    ('text', 'Text'),
)
DPASTE_EXPIRE_CHOICES

Choices. A tuple of seconds and a descriptive string used in the lexer expiration dropdown. Example:

from django.utils.translation import ugettext_lazy as _
DPASTE_EXPIRE_CHOICES = (
    (3600, _(u'In one hour')),
    (3600 * 24 * 7, _(u'In one week')),
    (3600 * 24 * 30, _(u'In one month')),
    (3600 * 24 * 30 * 12 * 100, _(u'100 Years')),
)

One-Time snippets are supported. One-Time snippets are automatically deleted once a defined view count has reached (Default: 2). To enable one-time snippets you have to add a choice onetime to the expire choices:

from django.utils.translation import ugettext_lazy as _
DPASTE_EXPIRE_CHOICES = (
    ('onetime', _(u'One-Time snippet')),
    (3600, _(u'In one hour')),
    (3600 * 24 * 7, _(u'In one week')),
    (3600 * 24 * 30, _(u'In one month')),
)

You can also set the maximum view count after what the snippet gets deleted. The default is 2. One view is from the author, one view is from another user:

DPASTE_ONETIME_LIMIT = 2

Infinite snippets are supported. You can keep snippets forever when you set the choice key to never. The management command will ignore these snippets:

from django.utils.translation import ugettext_lazy as _
DPASTE_EXPIRE_CHOICES = (
    (3600, _(u'In one hour')),
    (u'never', _(u'Never')),
)
DPASTE_EXPIRE_DEFAULT
The key of the default value of DPASTE_EXPIRE_CHOICES. Default: 3600 * 24 * 30 * 12 * 100 or simpler: DPASTE_EXPIRE_CHOICES[2][0].
DPASTE_ENABLE_GIST
Removed in Version 2.13! Boolean. Whether to display the Gist button for re-pasting to GitHub. Default: True
DPASTE_DEFAULT_GIST_NAME
Removed in Version 2.13! String. The filename used when pasting a snippet on Github Gist. Default: dpaste.de_snippet.py
DPASTE_DEFAULT_GIST_DESCRIPTION
Removed in Version 2.13! String. The filename used when pasting a snippet on Github Gist. Default: dpaste.de_snippet.py
DPASTE_JQUERY_URL
String. URL to use for jQuery. Default: //ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1/jquery.js
