Gist

Используйте REST API для перечисления, создания, обновления и удаления общедоступных элементов gist в GitHub.

Сведения о gist

Вы можете использовать REST API для просмотра и изменения gist. Дополнительные сведения о gist см. в разделе Редактирование и предоставление доступа к содержимому с помощью gist.

Аутентификация

Можно читать общедоступные gist и создавать их для анонимных пользователей без токена. Для чтения или записи gist от имени пользователя вам потребуется область OAuth Gist и токен. Дополнительные сведения см. в разделе Области для приложений OAuth.

Усечение

API предоставляет до одного мегабайта содержимого для каждого файла в gist. Каждый файл, возвращаемый для gist через API, имеет ключ с именем truncated. Если truncated имеет значение true, это значит, что файл имеет слишком большой размер и в content возвращена только часть содержимого.

Если требуется полное содержимое файла, можно выполнить запрос GET к URL-адресу, указанному в raw_url. Имейте в виду, что для файлов размером более десяти мегабайт необходимо клонировать gist по URL-адресу, предоставленному git_pull_url.

Помимо усечения содержимого определенного файла, весь список файлов может быть усечен, если общее число файлов превышает 300. Если ключ верхнего уровня truncated имеет значение true, в списке файлов возвращены только первые 300 файлов. Если нужно получить все файлы gist, необходимо клонировать gist через URL-адрес, предоставленный git_pull_url.

Пользовательские типы мультимедиа для gist

Ниже приведены поддерживаемые типы мультимедиа для получения содержимого gist.

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

Дополнительные сведения см. в разделе Типы носителей.
