Gists

La API de Gists habilita al usuario autorizado para enumerar, crear, actualizar y borrar los gists públicos en GitHub.

Acerca de la API de Gists

La API de Gists permite ver y modificar gists. Para obtener más información sobre los gists, consulta "Edición y uso compartido de contenido con gists".

Authentication

Puede leer gists públicos de forma anónima, pero debe haber iniciado sesión en GitHub para crear gists. Para leer o escribir gists en nombre de un usuario, necesita el ámbito OAuth para gists y un token. Para más información, vea "Ámbitos para aplicaciones de OAuth".

Truncamiento

La API de Gist proporciona hasta un megabyte de contenido para cada archivo en el gist. Cada archivo que se devuelve para un gist mediante la API tiene una clave denominada truncated. Si truncated es true, el archivo es demasiado grande y solo se devuelve una parte del contenido en content.

Si necesita el contenido completo del archivo, puede realizar una solicitud GET a la URL que se especifica en raw_url. Tenga en cuenta que, para los archivos mayores de 10 GB, tendrá que clonar el gist por medio de la URL que ha proporcionado git_pull_url.

Adicionalmente a el truncamiento del contenido específico del archivo, la lista de archivos completa podría truncarse si la cantidad total excede los 300 archivos. Si la clave truncated de nivel superior es true, solo se han devuelto los primeros 300 archivos de la lista de archivos. Si tiene que recuperar todos los archivos del gist, tendrá que clonarlo por medio de la URL proporcionada por git_pull_url.

Tipos de medios personalizados para los gists

Estos son los tipos de medios compatibles para recuperar el contenido de los gists.

application/vnd.github.VERSION.raw
application/vnd.github.VERSION.base64

Para más información, vea "Tipos de soporte físico".
