       gist-paste - upload code to


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


       If you have ruby installed:

              gem install gist

       If you´re using Bundler:

              source :rubygems gem ´gist´


       ·   To upload the contents of a.rb just:

           gist-paste a.rb

       ·   Upload multiple files:

           gist-paste a b c gist-paste *.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 lib/gist.rb bin/gist-paste -u 42f2c239d2eb57299408

       ·   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-paste to open a browser window directly with -o.

           gist-paste -o <a.rb

       ·   See gist-paste --help for more detail.


       If you want to associate your gists with your GitHub  account,  you  need  to  login  with
       gist-paste.  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:

       You can read the 2-factor auth code from an sms or the authentification app, depending  on
       how you set your account up

       Note:         2-factor         authentication         just        appeared        recently, so if you run into errors,  update
       the gist gem.

           gem update gist

       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.  If  you
       need  to  store  tokens  for both and a Github Enterprise instance you can save
       your Github Enterprise token in ~/ where  ""  is
       the URL for your Github Enterprise instance.

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

           gist-paste -a a.rb

       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

GitHub enterprise

       ·   If   you´d   like   gist-paste   to  use  your  locally  installed  GitHub  Enterprise
 , you need to export the GITHUB_URL environment variable
           in your ~/.bashrc.

           export GITHUB_URL=

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


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

           alias gist-paste=´gist-paste -c´

       ·   If  you´d  prefer  gist-paste  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-paste will use it.
