There are two ways to set GitHub user and password info:
Using env vars GITHUB_USER and GITHUB_PASSWORD:
$ export GITHUB_USER="your-github-username" $ export GITHUB_PASSWORD="your-github-password" $ gist ~/example
Or by having your git config set up with your GitHub username and password.
git config --global github.user "your-github-username" git config --global github.password "your-github-password"
You can also define github.password to be a command which returns the
actual password on stdout by setting the variable to a command string
!. For example, the following command fetches the
password from the Mac OS Keychain entry for the GitHub website (if you
allow your browser to save passwords):
password = !security find-internet-password -u <your github username> -s github.com -w | tr -d '\n'
If you don't allow your browser to save passwords, you can use the following to fetch the password from a Keychain entry named "github.password" (you'll also need to create the Keychain entry):
password = !security find-generic-password -gs github.password -w | tr -d '\n'
You can set a few options in your git config (using git-config(1)) to control the default behavior of gist(1).
gist.private - boolean (yes or no) - Determines whether to make a gist private by default
gist.extension - string - Default extension for gists you create.
gist.browse - boolean (yes or no) - Whether to open the gist in your browser after creation. Default: yes
Set the HTTP_PROXY env variable to use a proxy.
$ HTTP_PROXY=host:port gist file.rb
