+# Generating Access Token
+Currently, the only way to create a Gist Access Token is to curl the authorize API from Github. Here's the command you can run from your terminal to do so:
+ curl -v -u USERNAME -X POST --data "{\"scopes\":[\"gist\"]}"
+Where USERNAME is your Github username. Save the token generated and paste it in the settings section under the token option.
# Options
If you're using OS X and have a keychain entry for, no configuration is needed. Otherwise, edit the settings file (it should open automatically the first time you use a Gist command). Note you must specifiy either username AND password or token.
