Project description


A CLI tool for gists like no other. Run, download and help build a searchable gist API

Build Status Python version Coverage Status


  • Run gists directly from your bash. Multiple language support (python, ruby, shell, node)
  • Offline cache for gists


ingi assumes that any required binaries for executing gists are installed on your system, if not then it will fail.

Install the cli tool through pip:

pip install ingi-cli


Invoking a gist

ingi get

or use the gist ID

ingi get --use_id ac5a0fb49370e7cff3bee93ecc40b9a8

You can also just cache the gist to use later

ingi get --save_only --use_id ac5a0fb49370e7cff3bee93ecc40b9a8

TODO & Improvements

  • Implementing a gist index to search gists programmatically. Any gists executed locally get automatically inserted and indexed on API to be used. This will provide us with a rest API to search for gists 😀.

  • Configurable invoke queue, like an invoke.yaml which lists a bunch of gists to execute in order.

  • arguments to be passed to scripts, for e.g:

ingi get --use_id ac5a0fb49370e7cff3bee93ecc40b9a8 first_arg second_arg
