For the latest version please see https://github.com/mattn/gist-vim.

Post selected text to gist, using default privacy option. This applies to all permutations listed below (except multi).
Create a private gist.

This is only relevant if you've set gists to be private by default; if you get an empty gist list, try ":Gist --abandon".
Create a gist anonymously.
Create a gist with all open buffers.
Edit the gist (you need to have opened the gist buffer first). You can update the gist with the ":w" command within the gist buffer.
Edit the gist with name 'foo.js' (you need to have opened the gist buffer first).
:Gist -e foo.js
Post/Edit with the description " (you need to have opened the gist buffer first). >
:Gist -s something :Gist -e -s something
Delete the gist (you need to have opened the gist buffer first). Password authentication is needed.
Fork the gist (you need to have opened the gist buffer first). Password authentication is needed.
Star the gist (you need to have opened the gist buffer first). Password authentication is needed.
Unstar the gist (you need to have opened the gist buffer first). Password authentication is needed.
Get gist XXXXX.

:Gist -c XXXXX
List your public gists.
List gists from user "mattn".
:Gist -l mattn
List everyone's gists.

If you set g:gist_clip_command, gist.vim will copy the gist code with option '-c'.
let g:gist_clip_command = 'pbcopy'
let g:gist_clip_command = 'xclip -selection clipboard'
let g:gist_clip_command = 'putclip'
If you want to detect filetype from the filename:
let g:gist_detect_filetype = 1
If you want to open browser after the post:
let g:gist_open_browser_after_post = 1
If you want to change the browser:
let g:gist_browser_command = 'w3m %URL%'
let g:gist_browser_command = 'opera %URL% &'
On windows, this should work with your user settings.
If you want to show your private gists with ":Gist -l":
let g:gist_show_privates = 1
If you want your gist to be private by default:
let g:gist_post_private = 1
If you want to manipulate multiple files in a gist:
let g:gist_get_multiplefile = 1
If you want to use on GitHub Enterprise:
let g:gist_api_url = 'http://your-github-enterprise-domain/api/v3'
You need to either set global git config:
$ git config --global github.user Username

This plugin supports both basic and two-factor authentication using GitHub
API v3. The plugin stores its credentials in
First, you need to set your GitHub username in git's global configuration:
$ git config --global github.user <username>
Then gist-vim will ask for your password in order to create an access token. If you have two-factor authentication enabled, gist-vim will also prompt you to enter the two-factor key you receive.
Whichever type of authentication you use, your GitHub password will not be
stored, only a OAuth access token produced specifically for gist-vim. The
token is stored in
~/.gist-vim. If you stop using the plugin, you can
easily remove this file. To revoke the associated GitHub token, go to the
list of "Authorized applications" on GitHub's "Account Settings"
