Unable to create gists any more since github switched to https....


Any idea whats up here? I see you did a push 2 days ago, but I am stil getting errors, only know they say "error" rather then "gist created"

Sorry, all I had time to do was try a few things (and add a better error message). Not sure that's missing/wrong at the moment.

Yea, this started right after github switched to https only, so I assume the http API simply was turned down...

anybody get this working yet?

Same here. Too bad. Guess we should pester the github guys to finally provide a public API for create/fork/delete instead hacking into gists.

After some guess work I got this work:
Here's my gist.rb:



There might have been an issue, at least in my tests, with your regex. I forked your project corrected, and send a pull to you.

Thanks again for your hard work, you certainly did the heavy lifting!


timkelty commented Dec 2, 2010

Oh I'm sure there was, that was just a quick shot to get it working, thanks!

I think the regexp line should look like this:


Thanks for the hard work, Tim.

I don't think the above fix is correct, because it just short-circuits the HTTPS support that GitHub requires. GitHub's nginx server was returning a 400, because Net::HTTP.post_form was just sending a plain text HTTP request to an HTTPS port.

This commit provides support for HTTPS: https://github.com/roder/github-tmbundle/commit/42881cb5ed1d423a4f33844569c61e55988a9cef

Confirmed that @roder's commit fixes it. Thanks!
