A Mac OSX service using the wiki of a GitHub project as a replacement for the GitHub Download Area. It creates a link which can be pasted from your Clipboard.

The repository you want to store files in needs a wiki setup. Just click the wiki link of your repository once.

Your user's Downloads (~/Downloads) folder is used as a temporary storage, so the service needs read/write access to it.

How to upload files

Select on or multiple files and right-click to bring up the context menu. Select GitHubFileStorage

The service will prompt you for the name of the repository, including the organization or username. For this repository it would be dlinsin/GitHubFileStorage:

Each step is confirmed by a Mac notification, to let you know what's happening.
