BitText Quick Help
This is a web interface for BitText.
BitText is a bitmessage operated service,
that allows users to store and read text messages.
Texts are given a 10 digit ID. Only people with the ID can read the text.
To get more information on how to use the service,
send a Bitmessage to the above address with the Text "HELP" in the subject.
To read a Text on this site, enter an URL in the format bittext.ch/ID.
Most important differences between the bitmessage and the web version
- The Bitmessage version is anonymous
- The Bitmessage version sends you the creators address of a text, the Web version does not
- The Web version allows you to get content instantly
- The Web version allows you to view HTML content in your browser
- The Web version displays big messages as 1 part.
- The Web version is not protected/signed.
- The Web version is read-only
Wait, did you say HTML in browser? That's insane!
As insane as clicking on the "View HTML" link.
Think about it, you can host complete websites on here for free by just linking texts together.
If you need an example, of how this works, see this text: INDEX_HTML.
The link will not open the HTML version, you have to click on the "View as HTML" manually.
The site has a CSS linked into it and an Image, displayed in an iFrame.
Can I store binary files?
Yes, but you need to encode them into an UTF-8 safe encoding.
For example this Image,
it is encoded as Base64 and put inside a valid HTML image tag,
so the HTML view displays it.
How did you get the nice IDs?
The "VAN" Command is your friend.
What about a repository
This is currently in discussion and will probably be described here soon.
Do you know how long it takes to generate nice looking onion urls?
here you go: bittexttizfec375.onion.
I found something disturbing or illegal
