API Documentation


The PasteCode Public API uses API tokens to authenticate requests. You can get the API Token in your profile. Authentication to the API is performed using the Bearer auth method in the Authorization header. For example, set Authorization header while using cURL:

curl -H "Authorization: Bearer [API_TOKEN]"

Rate Limits

Public API uses rate limits to help manage the sheer volume of requests we receive. The rate limit is characterized by allowing a maximum number of requests within a time interval. For most of our routes, that limit is 10 requests every 60 seconds. However, we also have routes that have custom rate limits. If the endpoint you are using has a custom rate limit, you will find that information in the documentation of that route.
