TIPS *gist-vim-tips*
If you set "g:gist_clip_command", gist.vim will copy the gist code with option
"-c".
- Mac: >
let g:gist_clip_command = 'pbcopy'
<
- Linux: >
let g:gist_clip_command = 'xclip -selection clipboard'
<
- Others (cygwin?): >
let g:gist_clip_command = 'putclip'
<
If you want to detect filetype from the filename: >
let g:gist_detect_filetype = 1
<
If you want to open the browser after the post: >
let g:gist_open_browser_after_post = 1
<
If you want to change the browser: >
let g:gist_browser_command = 'w3m %URL%'
<
or: >
let g:gist_browser_command = 'opera %URL% &'
<
On windows, this should work with your user settings.
If you want to show your private gists with ":Gist -l": >
let g:gist_show_privates = 1
<
If you get problems when creating gists try: >
:Gist --abandon
<
