+Jist is a gem that allows you to publish a [gist](https://gist.github.com) from Ruby.
+
+# Introduction
+
+Jist is a really simple library that wraps a single API call, you use it:
+
+```ruby
+Jist.gist("Look.at(:my => 'awesome').code")
+```
+
+If you need more advanced features you can also pass:
+
+* `:username` and `:password` to log in and post an authenticated gist.
+* `:filename` to change the syntax highlighting (default is `a.rb`).
+* `:public` if you want your hist to have a guessable url.
+* `:description` to add a description to your gist.
+
+Todo
+====
+
+It'd be nice to add a binary so that you can use it from your terminal. In the meantime you can use:
+
+```shell
+
+$ ruby -rjist -e'puts Jist.gist(ARGF.read)["html_url"]' <<EOF
+Look.at(:my => 'awesome').code
+EOF
+```
+
+Meta-fu
+=======
+
+I wrote this because the `gist` gem is out of action, and has been for many months.
+
+It's licensed under the MIT license, and bug-reports, and pull requests are welcome.
