Write.as

Build Status Public Slack discussion

This is a simple telnet-based interface for publishing text. Users connect and paste / type what they want to publish. Upon indicating that they're finished, a link is generated to access their new post on the web.

Write.as telnet server

Try it

Or not :(. We had to shut it down because it was getting DDoSed too much. But you can still run it yourself.

telnet nerds.write.as

Run it yourself

Usage:
  nerds [options]

Options:
  --debug
       Enables garrulous debug logging.
  -o   
       Directory where text files will be stored.
  -s
       Directory where required static files exist (like the banner).
  -h
       Hostname of the server to rsync saved files to.
  -p
       Port to listen on.

The default configuration (without any flags) is essentially:

nerds -o /var/write -s . -p 2323

How it works

The user's input is simply written to a flat file in a given directory. To provide web access, a web server (sold separately) serves all files in this directory as plain/text. That's it!
