@CrandellWS CrandellWS commented Sep 28, 2015

@Aenian For Windows you can create the gist with the npm command line client npm install -g mkg which can be setup as a batch process if desired but I would strongly recommend using https://desktop.github.com/ as the desktop client for everything but creation of the Gist, for that use the npm package command line client:

npm install -g mkg

I really think that this gist deserves a good read from the author and add some of them back to gist content. (ie Lepton is not in list yet and totally deserves to be)

Unlike the many other Python options here, this one works as of 2020-04: https://github.com/jdowner/gist
Just install add a ~/.gist config file with your github token as described there.
