Gist Code Examples

Examples with :class:`Gist <github3.gist.Gist>`s

Listing gists after authenticating

from github3 import login

gh = login(username, password)
gists = [g for g in gh.iter_gists()]

Creating a gist after authenticating

from github3 import login

gh = login(username, password)
files = {
    'spam.txt' : {
        'content': 'What... is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?'
        }
    }
gist = gh.create_gist('Answer this to cross the bridge', files, public=False)
# gist == <Gist [gist-id]>
print(gist.html_url)

Creating an anonymous gist

from github3 import create_gist

files = {
    'spam.txt' : {
        'content': 'What... is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?'
        }
    }
gist = create_gist('Answer this to cross the bridge', files)
comments = [c for c in gist.iter_comments()]
# []
comment = gist.create_comment('Bogus. This will not work.')
# Which of course it didn't, because you're not logged in
# comment == None
print(gist.html_url)

In the above examples 'spam.txt' is the file name. GitHub will autodetect file type based on extension provided. 'What... is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?' is the file's content or body. 'Answer this to cross the bridge' is the gist's description. While required by github3.py, it is allowed to be empty, e.g., '' is accepted by GitHub.

Note that anonymous gists are always public.
