Work with 'GitHub' 'gists' from 'R' (e.g., http://en.wikipedia.org/ wiki/GitHub#Gist, https://help.github.com/articles/about-gists/). A 'gist' is simply one or more files with code/text/images/etc. This package allows the user to create new 'gists', update 'gists' with new files, rename files, delete files, get and delete 'gists', star and 'un-star' 'gists', fork 'gists', open a 'gist' in your default browser, get embed code for a 'gist', list 'gist' 'commits', and get rate limit information when 'authenticated'. Some requests require authentication and some do not. 'Gists' website: https:// gist.github.com/.
