A Python command-line wrapper with github3.py library to access GitHub Gist

Project description

A Python command-line wrapper with github3.py library to access GitHub Gist.

Installation

You can install with pip:

pip install pgist -U

Or with easy_install:

easy_install -U pgist

Command

To upload the contents of a.py just:

pgist a.py

Or you can accept stdin as a file like this:

pgist -

type ctrl+D to end stdin and ctrl+C to abort.

Upload multiple files:

pgist a b c

Use -p to make the gist private:

pgist a.py -p

Use -d to add a description:

pgist -d "Say something" a.py

You can update existing gists with -u:

pgist b.py c.py -u 2c93e03266634cd6e273

List your public gists:

pgist -l

And list all gists including private ones:

pgist -l -A

See pgist –help for more detail.

Login

If you want to associate your gists with your GitHub account, you need to login with pgist. It doesn’t store your username and password, it just uses them to get an OAuth2 token (with the “gist” permission).

pgist --login
GitHub username(default is xxxxx): douglarek
GitHub password for douglarek:
Done ...

After you’ve done this, you can still upload gists anonymously with -a:

pgist a.py -a
