Editing and sharing content with gists

  • Creating gists

    You can create two kinds of gists: public and secret. Create a public gist if you're ready to share your ideas with the world or a secret gist if you're not.

  • Forking and cloning gists

    Gists are actually Git repositories, which means that you can fork or clone any gist, even if you aren't the original author. You can also view a gist's full commit history, including diffs.

  • Saving gists with stars

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