Even simpler Gist tool

edited March 2015 in Code Sharing Posts: 154

Now that we have the awesome "COPY" button on forums, Github gists are less needed. However, when sharing a big project with many tabs, gist is still a good option.

You may have seen my earlier attempt to make a Gist uploader / downloader tool. @Jmv38 and @HyroVitalyProtago had contributed nice improvements to it. This is a new, shorter and simpler version of it, and it's even eaiser to use. At least, i hope it is :)

No more project duplicating tricks and such. You simply paste the link and hit "Download gist" button to download the gist into pasteboard. If the gist content is in proper Codea "project format", then you will be able to long-press the "Add New Project" button, and then choose "Paste Into Project" option.

Uploads work as before: long-press your project button, then choose "Copy". This will copy your project into pasteboard in Codea project format. Then run Gist uploader and click on "UPLOAD: Create new gist" button. That's it.
