Pull requests are very welcome

Privacy/authentication

Gisto authenticates to GitHub by using one of the following methods:

  • Oauth2 - the default option on the log-in screen

  • Basic authentication over SSL and retrieving an oAuth2 token. Thus the need for your GitHub user and password

  • Access token - If you would rather to supply your own access token without providing Gisto your login details you may manually create an access token from the account settings at GitHub and login using the generated token

  • Token via CLI - You can log-in with token by passing it to the executable as CLI argument (macOs example): open /Applications/Gisto.app/ --args --token 123123 (#183)

Gisto only saves the oAuth2 token received after authenticating and nothing else.

This token will be saved permanently until you log out.

You can find out more at the F.A.Q. section
