I had worked on a Pastebin API earlier but I never released it.
Here is the link ( ... BinApi.ahk ) .
This code pastes on Pastebin

pbin := new pastebin()
msgbox % Clipboard := pbin.pasteAsGuest("some text to paste", "paste_name", "autohotkey")

The API is complete with respect to their documentation. It should work well.

Below is an example of how to post on PASTEBIN as a registered user;

This is also useful for someone who needs to make HTTP Requests (Query, GET, POST methods) to other website's API. It is very simple to use and straightforward to understand.

Getting your Dev Key (api_dev_key);

Go to and find the section "Your Unique Developer API Key". Your dev key is listed here.

Getting your User Key (api_dev_key);

Go to Enter your username and password and click "create api_user_key"

Unfortunately it is NOT possible to Edit pastebin pastes using Http Requests.
