I’ve spent my spare time during the summer working on a redesigned and renamed update to PasteShack, with some additional new features. The final product is now up and available at pasteboard.co. The biggest new feature is that you now can use Drag & Drop in addition to pasting in images from your clipboard.
I’ve also put work into improving the upload process. To speed things up for you, the web app silently starts preuploading the image as soon as it is inserted. When you click to upload the image, the server sends the file over to the cloud and gives you your link almost instantly. There’s also an upload progress bar for those cases when the image haven’t had time to pre-upload.
The back-end is powered by Node + Express and the front-end is written in HTML, LESS and CoffeeScript. I’ve enjoyed working on this project a lot and the user feedback so far has been great, I definitely plan to keep working on it. For anyone interested, the source code for the app is available on Github for you to learn from and contribute to.
