How to add an image to a gist

How to add an image to a gist

  1. Create a gist if you haven't already.

  2. Clone your gist:

    # make sure to replace `<hash>` with your gist's hash
    git clone https://gist.github.com/<hash>.git # with https
    git clone git@gist.github.com:<hash>.git     # or with ssh
  3. Add your image to your gist's repository:

    git add your-image.jpg
  4. Commit the image:

    git commit -m "Add image"
  5. Update gist:

    git push origin master

Thanks for sharing. For those who get authentication errors while running git push origin master like me, try to create a new personal access token at https://github.com/settings/tokens and use that one instead of your GitHub password (see https://stackoverflow.com/a/31305980/4964553). This should help, especially if you use two factor authentication.

Easier would be to comment your Gist and add an image there.

There is no master branch. It is named main in this case.

@steinarb You have to use only git push without the origin master

I kept having weird auth issues with https. When it would try to auth me with Github in the browser, I would just get a 404.

I switched to ssh (fyi you must create an ssh key and add the public key to Github settings), remembering to change the repo remote, e.g.

git remote set-url --push origin git@github.com:<some_gist_hash>.git

This worked, and I was able to commit and push images to the gist repo.

If you get an error saying:

error: src refspec master does not match any
error: failed to push some refs to 'https://gist.github.com/<hash>.git'

Since your repository has a branch named "main", you should push your changes to that branch instead of "master". To push to the "main" branch, use the following command:

git push origin main

This command will push the changes in your local "main" branch to the remote repository.

^ Agreed, change from git push origin master to git push origin main.

The command with ssh is:

git clone git@github.com:HASH.git
