       gist - upload code to


       The gist gem provides a gist command that you can use from your terminal to upload content


       ·   If you have ruby installed:

           gem install gist

       ·   If you´re using Bundler:

           source :rubygems gem ´gist´

       ·   For OS X, gist lives in Homebrew

           brew install gist


       ·   To upload the contents of a.rb just:

           gist-paste a.rb

       ·   Upload multiple files:

           gist-paste a b c gist *.rb

       ·   By default it reads from STDIN, and you can set a filename with -f.

           gist-paste -f test.rb <a.rb

       ·   Alternatively, you can just paste from the clipboard:

           gist-paste -P

       ·   Use -p to make the gist private:

           gist-paste -p a.rb

       ·   Use -d to add a description:

           gist-paste -d "Random rbx bug" a.rb

       ·   You can update existing gists with -u:

           gist-paste -u GIST_ID FILE_NAME gist -u 42f2c239d2eb57299408 test.txt

       ·   If you´d like to copy the resulting URL to your clipboard, use -c.

           gist-paste -c <a.rb

       ·   If you´d like to copy the resulting embeddable URL to your clipboard, use -e.

           gist-paste -e <a.rb

       ·   And you can just ask gist to open a browser window directly with -o.

           gist-paste -o <a.rb

       ·   To list (public gists or all gists for authed user) gists for user

           gist-paste -l : all gists for authed user gist -l  defunkt  :  list  defunkt´s  public

       To read a gist and print it to STDOUT

           gist -r GIST_ID
           gist -r 374130

       ·   See gist --help for more detail.


       If you want to associate your gists with your GitHub account, you need to login with gist.
       It doesn´t store your username and password, it just uses them  to  get  an  OAuth2  token
       (with the "gist" permission).

           gist-paste --login
           Obtaining OAuth2 access_token from github.
           GitHub username: ConradIrwin
           GitHub password:
           2-factor auth code:

       This  token  is  stored in ~/.gist and used for all future gisting. If you need to you can
       revoke it from, or just delete the file.

       ·   After you´ve done this, you can still upload gists anonymously with -a.

           gist-paste -a a.rb

   GitHub Enterprise
       If   you´d   like   gist   to   use   your    locally    installed    GitHub    Enterprise,  you  need  to  export the GITHUB_URL environment variable
       (usually done in your ~/.bashrc).

           export GITHUB_URL=

       Once you´ve done this and restarted your terminal (or run  source  ~/.bashrc),  gist  will
       automatically use github enterprise instead of the public

       Your token for GitHub Enterprise will be stored in .gist.<protocol>.<>[.<port>]
       (e.g. for the GITHUB_URL example above) instead of

       If  you  have  multiple  servers  or  use Enterprise and public GitHub often, you can work
       around this by creating scripts that set the env var and then run gist. Keep in mind  that
       to  use  the  public  GitHub you must unset the env var. Just setting it to the public URL
       will not work. Use unset GITHUB_URL

   Token file format
       If you cannot use passwords, as most Enterprise installations do,  you  can  generate  the
       token  via  the  web  interface and then simply save the string in the correct file. Avoid
       line breaks or you might see: $ gist -l Error: Bad credentials

       You can also use Gist as a library from inside your ruby code:

              Gist.gist(" => ´awesome´).code")

       If you need more advanced features you can also pass:

       ·   :access_token to authenticate using OAuth2 (default is `"~/.gist")).

       ·   :filename to change the syntax highlighting (default is a.rb).

       ·   :public if you want your gist to have a guessable url.

       ·   :description to add a description to your gist.

       ·   :update to update an existing gist (can be a URL or an id).

       ·   :anonymous to submit an anonymous gist (default is false).

       ·   :copy to copy the resulting URL to the clipboard (default is false).

       ·   :open to open the resulting URL in a browser (default is false).

       NOTE: The access_token must have the "gist" scope.

       ·   If you want to upload multiple files in the same gist, you can:

           Gist.multi_gist("a.rb" => "", "" => "")

       ·   If you´d rather use gist´s builtin access_token, then you can force the user to obtain
           one by calling:


       ·   This  will  take them through the process of obtaining an OAuth2 token, and storing it
           in ~/.gist, where it can later be read by Gist.gist


       ·   If you´d like -o or -c to be the default when you use  the  gist  executable,  add  an
           alias to your ~/.bashrc (or equivalent). For example:

           alias gist=´gist -c´

       ·   If  you´d  prefer  gist  to  open a different browser, then you can export the BROWSER
           environment variable:

           export BROWSER=google-chrome

       If clipboard or browser integration don´t work on your platform,  please  file  a  bug  or
       (more ideally) a pull request.

       If  you  need  to  use  an  HTTP  proxy  to  access the internet, export the HTTP_PROXY or
       http_proxy environment variable and gist will use it.
