Gists

Utilisez l’API REST pour lister, créer, mettre à jour et supprimer les gists publics sur GitHub.

À propos des gists

Vous pouvez utiliser l’API REST pour afficher et modifier des gists. Pour plus d’informations sur les gists, consultez « Modification et partage de contenu avec des gists ».

Authentification

Vous pouvez lire les gists publics , et les créer pour les utilisateurs anonymes sans jeton. Pour lire ou écrire des gists au nom d’un utilisateur, vous avez besoin de l’étendue OAuth gist et d’un jeton. Pour plus d’informations, consultez « Étendues pour les applications OAuth ».

Troncation

L’API fournit jusqu’à un mégaoctet de contenu pour chaque fichier du gist. Chaque fichier retourné pour un gist via l’API a une clé appelée truncated. Si truncated est true, le fichier est trop volumineux et seule une partie du contenu a été retournée dans content.

Si vous avez besoin du contenu complet du fichier, vous pouvez effectuer une requête GET à l’URL spécifiée par raw_url. N’oubliez pas que pour les fichiers de plus de dix mégaoctets, vous devez cloner le gist via l’URL fournie par git_pull_url.

Outre le contenu d’un fichier spécifique tronqué, la liste entière des fichiers peut être tronquée si le nombre total dépasse 300 fichiers. Si la clé truncated de niveau supérieur est true, seuls les 300 premiers fichiers ont été retournés dans la liste des fichiers. Si vous avez besoin d’extraire tous les fichiers du gist, vous devez cloner le gist via l’URL fournie par git_pull_url.

Types de médias personnalisés pour les gists

Il s’agit des types de médias pris en charge pour extraire le contenu d’un gist.

application/vnd.github.raw
