Sublime Github

This is a plugin for the Sublime Text 2 text editor that allows you to create public or private Github Gists from the currently selected text.


cd ~/"Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 2/Packages/"
git clone

The plugin should be picked up automatically. If not, restart Sublime Text.


First, your Github username and API token needs to be set. See to see how to do this. Then:

  1. Select some text.
  2. Bring up the Command Palette (⇧⌘P by default)
  3. Start typing "Github", and select either "Private Gist from Selection" or "Public Gist from Selection"
  4. At the bottom of your editor, you'll be prompted for a description. After entering that, you'll be prompted for a filename.
  5. The url for your new gist will be copied to the clipboard.
