Description

Actuellement, pour télécharger dans un fichier le contenu du paste,
il faut faire plein de clics :
  • bouton « Texte brut » ;
  • clic droit > Enregistrer sous … ;
  • sélectionner format « Texte » en bas à droite ;
  • cliquer sur le bouton « Enregistrer ».

Soit 4 clics avec Firefox. En comparaison, avec Pastebin.com, 1 clic suffit.

Demande :
  • vérifier si un ticket portant ce besoin existe sur le projet officiel ;
  • ouvrir un ticket sur le projet officiel et convaincre le développeur d'ajouter un bouton « Download ».

Je pense que c'est pas possible en zero knowledge que le serveur envoi le contenu avec un Content-Disposition: attachment.

Affirmatif. C'est le Javascript côté client qui doit faire en sorte d'être la source du téléchargement.

De nos jours, ça semble faisable facilement : https://www.bitdegree.org/learn/javascript-download

De ce que j'ai compris du développeur de PrivateBin, il a attend d'identifier un vrai usage avant d'ajouter une fonctionnalité.

Ce lien indique que c'est disponible dans Firefox depuis la version 80 qui date de août 2020 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firefox_version_history).

Le ticket 386 cité plus haut date de 2018.

Donc il semble que ce soit maintenant techniquement possible et que ça vaut le coup de re-proposer la demande \o/

Courriel envoyé à elrido actif sur pastebin :

Hi ,

I am the animator of https://paste.chapril.org  that use a version of
privatebin . It works fine , no problem.

I am writing to you in the hope that you will accept my request. The
issue manager of the project PrivateBin is on Github. Github is not a
free software, it is a tracking tool for GAFAM, a politic tool (Patriot
Act., Cloud Act., Prism…) and I am disagree with their terms of use. So
I can’t create tickets in the project.

Some details on our use case. We used PrivateBin to share a bot report
with any users. So our bot uploads the text report on PrivateBin and
shares the link on IRC. Then anybody can verify the report and an
operator downloads it to make an archive. A report is 600 lines text
file. So copy/paste is weirding. Actually, with Firefox, the operator
has to do many clicks to get the file: click on "Raw text" button,
right-button, click on "Save as", click twice to select the format text,
then click "Save" button. So many clicks! Therefore a single "Download" 
button to do that would be great useful ot us.
It seems that now with HTML5 it is possible while respecting zeroknowledge.
Look at

Can you ?

Sincerely yours.

Yeah, I'm not to happy about that either. We started the project out on that platform - way before 
they got bought up by Microsoft - and now are just there mainly for the convenience it has over self
hosting it and the maintenance that includes. At the moment, something like Gitlab (their community edition,
self-hosted) with their runners for the CI/CD would probably the closest in replacement, with minimal
maintenance requirements. This topic is tracked in https://github.com/PrivateBin/PrivateBin/issues/325
(I now, you can't comment there, but for your reference).

For this use case I would recommend to use the file upload feature. Either only upload the file
(the reviewers will have to download it, to see it) or you upload it AND paste it into the text area. Example:
https://snip.dssr.ch/?be7be244d0eefa78#Ext9tUbBeeLupJqVPB6jvKkmxx8zdcqRwXSc6iy1wsh

To enable this features, set the parameter "fileupload" to true in your configuration file:
https://github.com/PrivateBin/PrivateBin/wiki/Configuration#fileupload

Hope this helps,
Simon

We know this is work, so we encourage you all. We are glad to hear
you’re thinking about it.

 Many thanks for this smart solution. But it uploads twice the same
data. It is clearly only a workaround. And to be honest, it will force
us to code in Java the upload of an attached file.

 The other approach is so simple. We are talking about one button and
ten Javascript lines.

 In order to convince you, here is an example of code integration:

https://forge.april.org/Chapril/paste.chapril.org-privatebin/commit/9bf5b6dbdeb86af0a6faa336ff16d9cddf989324

 You can run it here:

 Have a good day, from Paris (France)

I've taken the liberty and raised this as a pull request over in the other project site:
https://github.com/PrivateBin/PrivateBin/pull/774

Kind regards,
Simon
