Today I Learned

Work with a Gist locally

I like Gists, those fun-size Git repositories I fill with coding demos, scripts, and WIP markdown files. Today I learned you can edit these files locally and push them to a remote, just like any Git repo.

Grab your Gist URL:

https://gist.github.com/yourhandle/5bac61ee3fe0083

Alter it slightly, and clone:

$ git clone git@gist.github.com/5c61ee3fe0083.git
$ cd 5c61ee3fe0083/

Make changes, commit, and push away. Your commits will show up under the /revisions tab of your Gist.
