Users should be able to generate an API key for their account that will let them upload pastes/images to be associated with their account

Currently deciding whether to implement an auth token system like you describe, or basic auth to allow users to login for the API call. Tokens may be easier, but would require extra work for the user to set up.

I think allowing basic auth until API keys are implemented would be ideal.

As far as extra work for the user, I wouldn’t think so, just assign an API key to every user, and let them regenerate it whenever they like.

So I have made a hybrid system between Basic Auth and tokens. This has now been implemented and is released.
