GistService

A simple OS X service for easily posting text or files to Gist on Github.

Installation

Just copy GistService.service to ~/Library/Services, or /Library/Services if you want it for all users.

From source:

rake install      # Install for this user
rake install_all  # Install for all users

Authentication

By default, GistService will post your Gists anonymously, but if you'd like, you can set it up to paste as yourself; just run:

git config --global github.user "your github username"
git config --global github.token "your github token"

You can get these values by visiting https://github.com/account and clicking on "Global Git Config."

But it's just a wrapper around gistpaste, a script by David Blevins dblevins@visi.com. Thanks, David!
