Gister is build on some great frameworks and also builds its own for interacting with gists in objective-c. The GistManager framework can be used in any other project!

  • JSON
  • BWToolKit; Make sure to install the Interface Builder plugin, this can be found in the Frameworks directory.

These frameworks are included with Gister so you don't have to hunt them down.
