Help & Support

Pastebox is a safe, convenient way to share snippets of text with anyone, anywhere. It was created as a proof of concept, it may not be pretty, it may not be perfect but it's quick, clean, simple and does its job.

Pastebox supports syntax highlighting of several common languages, including:

  • BASH
  • C
  • C#
  • C++
  • CSS
  • HTML
  • Java
  • JavaScript
  • JSON
  • List
  • Objective C
  • Perl
  • PHP
  • Plain Text
  • Python
  • Ruby
  • SQL
  • Swift

Support for new languages is being added regularly. If you'd like us to add support for a particular language then let us know and we'll see what we can do.
