Create a gist from the Jupyter Notebook UI

Project Description
### jupyter-notebook-gist

[![Build Status](](


Create a gist from the Jupyter Notebook UI.

## Installation

To install, simply run:

pip install jupyter-notebook-gist
jupyter serverextension enable --py jupyter_notebook_gist
jupyter nbextension install --py jupyter_notebook_gist
jupyter nbextension enable --py jupyter_notebook_gist
jupyter nbextension enable --py widgetsnbextension

The last step is needed to enable the `widgetsnbextension` extension that
Jupyter-Notebook-Gist depends on. It may have been enabled before by a
different extension.

You may want to append ``--user`` to the commands above if you're getting
configuration errors upon invoking them.

To double-check if the extension was correctly installed run:

jupyter nbextension list
jupyter serverextension list

To uninstall the extension run:

jupyter serverextension disable --py jupyter_notebook_gist
jupyter nbextension disable --py jupyter_notebook_gist
jupyter nbextension uninstall --py jupyter_notebook_gist
pip uninstall jupyter-notebook-gist

## Configuration

After installing, edit your `` file to specify the
GitHub client id and secret.

If your `` file does not exist, you can create one by
running `jupyter notebook --generate-config`. You can check the location of
this file by running `jupyter --config-dir`.

c.NotebookGist.oauth_client_id = "my_client_id" # FIXME
c.NotebookGist.oauth_client_secret = "my_client_secret" # FIXME

Replace the vars above with a working GitHub client id and secret. You can
create one [here](

Here's an [example of an OAuth application](
created by @mreid-moz for testing.

Then run `jupyter notebook` from the repo root.

Alternatively you can also pass the GitHub client id and secret as command
line parameters when you run the notebook (please fill the placeholders

jupyter notebook --NotebookGist.oauth_client_id="<my_client_id>" --NotebookGist.oauth_client_secret="<my_client_secret>"
