I created this pastebin in 2006 for fellow early-adopter Django coders. Since Django 1.0, the framework’s debugging interface has had a “Share this traceback” button submitting to dpaste.com.

The “Scripts, Tools, Integrations” section on the site lists other projects that have also adopted it, like iPython/Jupyter (via its %pastebin command).

With integrations like these depending on the site, I take reliability and usability especially seriously.
