Alfred Workflow - Gist

A workflow for Alfred to create Gists from your clipboard contents or selected files.

Example 1 Example 2

Requirements

Setup

This workflow requires API access to gist.github.com. This requires a personal access token. Follow these steps to create and configure this token into the workflow.

  1. Go to Personal access tokens in your account settings.
  2. Click Generate New Token.
  3. Enter in a reasonable token description such as 'Alfred Gist Workflow'.
  4. Ensure that the only selected scope is 'gist'.
  5. Click 'Generate Token'.
  6. Copy the newly generated token to your clipboard.
  7. In Alfred, type gistconfig and select the 'Your API access token is' line to set your token.

It should look something like this: Setup

Configure

Type gistconfig to view the existing configuration or change them. When changing the token and server the value is taken from the clipboard.

If you want to share your configuration across multiple machines (ie. via Dropbox) you can provide a shared configuration directory. This directory must exist before setting it via the configuration.

Help

Type gist help to view this help. If you need more help open an issue and I'll see what I can do.

Usage

Files

If activated as a file action, the contents of the selected file(s) will be gisted using whatever public/private setting is currently in effect.

Clipboard Contents

Public/private gists:

  • gist private - a private gist.
  • gist public - a public gist.
  • gist p - a gist using the opposite of your current public configuration value. That is, if by default your gists are private gist p will create a public one (and vice versa).

Anonymous gists:

Gists will be associated with your account by default.

  • gist a - an anonymous gist.
  • gist anon - an anonymous gist.

All of the following examples can take the public/private or the anonymous parameter (but only one of them) as the first argument.

  • gist rb - a gist with a filename of "gist.rb" (ie. Ruby syntax).
  • gist .rb - a gist with a filename of "gist.rb" (ie. Ruby syntax).
  • gist foo.rb - a gist with a filename of "foo.rb".
  • gist ipsum lorem - a gist with no filename/syntax and a description of "ipsum lorem"
  • gist - ipsum lorem - a gist with no filename/syntax and a description of "ipsum lorem"
  • gist .rb ipsum lorem - a gist with a filename of "gist.rb" and a description of "ipsum lorem"
  • gist foo.rb ipsum lorem - a gist with a filename of "foo.rb" and a description of "ipsum lorem"
  • gist rb ipsum lorem - a gist with no filename and a description of "rb ipsum lorem"
  • gist - foo.rb ipsum lorem - a gist with no filename and a description of "foo.rb ipsum lorem"

Note the lack of a period or the addition of "-" in the filename argument has when specifying a description.
