=head1 NAME

App::Nopaste::Service - base class for nopaste services

=head1 VERSION

version 1.013


    package App::Nopaste::Service::Shadowcat;
    use parent 'App::Nopaste::Service';

    sub uri { "" }


C<App::Nopaste::Service> defines a generic interface for uploading to nopaste
sites. It provides a default interface to that of the POE Pastebot.

=head1 METHODS

=head2 nopaste

This is the outermost method called by L<App::Nopaste> and other clients. You
should not override this method, as it will (XXX: eventually) perform
canonicalization of arguments (such as C<lang>) for you.

=head2 run args -> (OK, message)

This is the outermost method you should override. You'll be passed a hash of arguments. The only arguments you should pay attention to are:

=over 4

=item text

The body of text to paste.

=item desc

A short (one-line) summary of the paste.

=item nick

The name of the person performing the paste.

=item chan

The IRC channel to which the paste belongs.

=item lang

The programming language of the body of text.

=item private

If false, the paste will be public (default).


=head2 get mech, args

This should "get" the form to paste using the provided L<WWW::Mechanize>
object. By default it does just that. See L</uri> below.

=head2 uri

If you only need to call C<< mech->get(uri) >> then you may define this method
to provide the URI of the nopaste service.

=head2 fill_form mech, args

This should have the L<WWW::Mechanize> fill in the form using the arguments,
and submit it.

=head2 return mech, args

This should look at C<< WWW::Mechanize->content >> to find the URI to the
pasted text.

=head1 SUPPORT

Bugs may be submitted through L<the RT bug tracker|>
(or L<|>).
