Basic Usage

You can send a local file or stdin.

# Local file
$ gistit myfile.txt

# Stdin
$ ls | gistit

# Additional info
$ ls | gistit -a "Matthew McConaughey" -d "My ls, lol"

Post to GitHub Gists.

$ gistit myfile.txt --github
# A browser window will open to authorize Github OAuth.
# Hit **authorize** and wait for the CLI to resume automatically.

Copy hash to system clipboard.

$ gistit myfile.txt -c
# Hash is now on your clipboard

Fetching gistits

# Fetch and preview
$ gistit f 8765d324ddd800f1112e77fece3d3ff2

# Fetch and save to local data directory
$ gistit f 8765d324ddd800f1112e77fece3d3ff2 --save


Peer to peer file sharing is opt in. Simply install gistit-daemon and start the background process.

# Start
$ gistit node --start

# Check network status
$ gistit node --status

If gistit-daemon is running sending and fetching gistits will be automatically done via IPFS network.
