    TL;DR;

    Use curl to quickly send files to gist.

    $ curl -sT README.md cist.mdp.im
    # => https://gist.github.com/ed946bc6572be36f75e5
    

    Feel free to use my heroku hosted service, or run your own.

    Why

    I'm sometimes on a new machine and I'd like to stash something quickly. Rather than setup the gist tool, I'd like to just curl the file and get back an anonymous private gist.

    cist does that.

    How

    Curl the file you want to gist

    $ curl -sT index.js cist.mdp.im
    # => https://gist.github.com/ed946bc6572be36f75e5
    

    This will return a gist URL with a single file named 'index.js' with the contents of index.js

    Run your own 'cist' server

    It's designed to run on Heroku. Run it on Heroku.
