Created AnonPasteBin Using appwrite's Anonymous Login functionality

Overview of My Submission

I came to know about appwrite on March 11th so had literally 1 day to submit the project...... but it turns out it's a dead simple setup for any developer and I've to say it's an amazing dev experience.

So I made this Anonymous Pastebin Project AKA "AnonPaste" to test out the anonymous login functionality provided by appwrite and how it works behind the scenes.

The project is dead simple, it does following:

  • As soon as you are on the create paste page you are automatically logged in using anonymous login.
  • When you create a paste after providing title and text it saves and redirects the user to the View Paste Page.
  • View Paste Page extracts the ID of the document AKA paste from the route and uses it to load the document AKA paste and show it to the user.
