Paste Selection in http://ix.io

This script use curl and xsel to makes Geany paste your editor selection in http://ix.io and return the url in your clipboard.

Download the script below - you will need to chmod u+x geany-ix-io.sh for make the script executable.

Add the custom command to Geany: Edit → Format → Send Selection To → Set Custom Commands → Add

Type the name of script (geany-ix-io.sh) or optionally you can write the whole custom command here:

sh -c "curl -s -F 'f:1=<-' ix.io | xsel -ib; exit 1"

Both, script or one liner command will work very well.

geany-ix-io.sh
#!/bin/bash
 
# The script need be in path or you will need specify complete script path
# in Custom Commands Add box.
 
sel=$(< /dev/stdin);
curl -s -F "f:1=$sel" http://ix.io | xsel -ib
echo -n "$sel";
exit 1
