Run shell script on gist

Shells that support process substitution such as bash and zsh allow to run shell script on gist as follows.

# With curl:
bash <(curl -sL ${GIST_URL}) args...

# With wget:
bash <(wget -nv -O - ${GIST_URL}) args...

# If wget-log is generated:
# https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/wget/+bug/1765690
bash <(wget -o /dev/null -nv -O - ${GIST_URL}) args...

For example:

bash <(curl -sL https://gist.githubusercontent.com/mob-sakai/174a32b95572e7d8fdbf8e6f43a528f6/raw/hello.sh) I am mob-sakai!
#!/usr/bin/env bash
echo "Hello! $@"
