A Python command-line wrapper with github3.py library to access GitHub Gist.
You can install with pip:
pip install pgist -U
Or with easy_install:
easy_install -U pgist
To upload the contents of a.py just:
Or you can accept stdin as a file like this:
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:
And list all gists including private ones:
pgist -l -A
See pgist –help for more detail.
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
