Saving gists with stars

You can star gists to keep track of projects you find interesting.

Starring a gist

You can star a gist to add it to the "Starred" page. Starring makes it easy to find a gist again later.

  1. Navigate to Discover, http(s)://[hostname]/gist/discover or http(s)://gist.[hostname]/discover if subdomains are enabled and select the gist you want to star.

  2. To star the gist, click Star in the top-right corner of the page.

  3. Optionally, to unstar a previously starred gist, click Unstar. This will remove the gist from your starred list.

Viewing your starred gists

Starring makes it easy to find a gist again later. You can see all the gists you've starred by navigating to http(s)://[hostname]/gist/YOUR_USERNAME/starred or http(s)://gist.[hostname]/YOUR_USERNAME/starred if subdomains are enabled.

Alternatively, follow the steps in the procedure.

  1. Navigate to your gist home page, http(s)://[hostname]/gist or http(s)://gist.[hostname] if subdomains are enabled.

  2. In the top right corner, click your profile picture.

  3. From the dropdown menu, select Starred gists.
