Options

If you're using OS X and have a keychain entry for github.com, no configuration is needed. Otherwise, edit the settings file (it should open automatically the first time you use a Gist command):

  • "max_gists": 100

    Set the maximum number of Gists that can will fetched by the plugin. It can't be higher than 100, because of GitHub API limitations.

Usage

All functionality of the plugin is available in the Tools / Gist menu and in the command pallette.

Creating Gists

Use the Gist / Create Public Gist or Gist / Create Private Gist commands. If you don't have anything selected, a Gist will be created with contents of current file, URL of that Gist will be copied to the clipboard and then the file will switch to Gist editing mode. If you have selected some text, a Gist will be created using only that text and then immediately opened for editing. In case of multiple selections, you'll get one Gist with multiple files.

Editing existing Gists

Use the Gist / Open Gist command to see a list of your Gists. Selecting one will open the files from that Gist in new tabs. You can then edit the files normally and use Gist / Update File to update the Gist, or use other commands to change Gist description, remove or rename files, or delete the Gist.

Adding new files to existing Gists

Use the Gist / Add File To Gist command to see a list of your Gists. Selecting one will add contents of current file as a new file to that Gist and switch the file to Gist editing mode.
