App::Nopaste::Service::Gist - Service provider for GitHub gist -


version 1.013

GitHub Authorization

In order to create gists you have to get an oauth token. That could be easily obtained via curl:

    curl -X POST '' \
        -d '{"scopes":["gist"],"note":"App::Nopaste"}'

or you can use this module to do the same:

    perl -MApp::Nopaste::Service::Gist -e 'App::Nopaste::Service::Gist->create_token'

You can also generate a token by navigating to <> and generate a new token with the 'Create gists' ability.

Then, export the resulting token as the the "GITHUB_OAUTH_TOKEN" environment variable. This will grant gist rights to App::Nopaste (or anything else that Don't worry, you can revoke access rights anytime from the GitHub profile settings.

Alternatively, you can export the "GITHUB_USER" and "GITHUB_PASSWORD" environment variables, just like for the gist <> utility.

You can also simply store your credentials in plaintext in ~/.github as in:

    login bob
    password ilikeducks

That's it!
