       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

       If you have a complicated authorization requirement you can manually create a  token  file
       by  pasting  a  Github token with only the gist permission into a file called ~/.gist. You
       can create one from

       This file should contain only the token (~40 hex characters), and to  make  it  easier  to
       edit, can optionally have a final newline (\n or \r\n).

       For example, one way to create this file would be to run:

           echo MY_SECRET_TOKEN > ~/.gist

   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 ~/.gist.

       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.
