Upload a gist to github directly from della


# First, install gist gem locally at della
gem install –user-install gist
echo ‘export PATH=$PATH:/PATH/TO/HOME/.gem/ruby/1.8/bin/’ >> ~/.bashrc
source ~/.bashrc

# Boot up connection
gist –login
[Enter Github username and password]

# Upload gist, e.g.
gist my_notebook.ipynb -u [secret_gist_string]

# secret_gist_string is the string already associated with a particular file on Github
# To obtain it, the first time you upload a file to Github (e.g. my_notebook.ipynb) go to
# | Gist | Add file [upload file] | Create secret Gist, which will
# return a secret_gist_string on the panel at right (labeled “HTTPS”)
