dead simple way to copy paste your stdin to


install node

$ npm install -g ghcopy
$ ghcopy-authorize
prompt: username: drsocketybearsocks
prompt: password:
  "t": "sometoken"

a file called ~/.ghcopy containing your token was created. if you are not in windows the permissions have been set so only you can read and write on it. it does not store your username.

if you are not comfortable with this you can create your token manually with curl and specify it each time you invoke ghcopy.

you can also specify all the other options here if you like. you might find that useful.


cat ~/.ssh/ 2>&1 | ghcopy

why did i add 2>&1 ? cause some scripts will error out, and you want to capture that.

anything piped to ghcopy on stdin will be sent to a new gist.

  -d, --description  description for this gist                              [default: "gist created by"]
  -v, --verbose      output to console while creating the gist              [boolean]  [default: true]
  -f, --filename     filename for the file pasted in this gist              [default: "ghcopy.txt"]
  -p, --public       boolean defining if this gist should be public or not  [boolean]  [default: false]
  -o, --open         boolean defining if we should open it in a browser     [boolean]  [default: true]
  -t, --token        define a github token                                  [required]  [default: "84c90072d47a61c0d0e51c11c42896e0bf7f8be6"]
  -h, --help         this message
