  1. Use labels as hashtags

    I'd like to use a marker (as #, for example) in a gist description to define gist's labels. When the label marked doesn't exists, it should be created automatically.

      • Is there a way to edit the layout?

        Im losing almost half my screen horizontally to the labels and the file description columns. The gist editor is too small. The code is wrapping.
        The UI could be much better. Move the file description column above the code editor. It is taking up a huge amount of horizontal space when it could be taking none. Thanks for gistbox.

          GistBox constantly crashes on Chrome & Firefox (Mac). Haven't had this issue before until recently.

                • Make gistbox open source. It will make gistbox app even awesomer!

                  Not only would it allow rapid development but I am sure one will get an even faster adoption.

                  • change Public/Private status of a gist after its creation in Groups (which are not stored in Github)

                    When you have a group and you collaborate on gists they are not stored in Github, but at Gistbox.

                    For new gist you can set public/private status.

                    But you cannot edit it later. Can you make this feature as it is possible now. You don`t relay on Github for the group gists.

                    • Rearrange Files Freely Within a Gist

                      So that frequently accessed files can be moved to the top, especially useful when a gist has many files, and partitioning them into different gists wouldn't make sense.

                      • Use selected text from PDFs

                        I've found text in PDFs that I'd like to save as gists. Gistbox Clipper's context menu item doesn't recognize that any text has been selected. The toolbar icon opens the dialog with the URL of the document in the gist description, but the selected text doesn't appear in the gist content box.

                        • Outgoing web hooks

                          It'd be great if we could create outgoing web hooks to pipe notifications into 3rd parties like Slack.

                            • GistBoxClipper: Support GitHub content

                              I've found that when I try to use the GistBox Clipper extension with github.com or gist.github.com web pages, the "fancybox" overlay and its child elements appear, but the"gclp-frame" iframe content never loads. I've reproduced the problem with a new, empty Chrome profile, so there aren't any extension conflicts. The browser console doesn't show any errors and the network activity tab shows two "data:image/png" requests, but nothing happens after that.

                                  • Add basic styling for tables in markdown gists

                                    Currently, no styling has been assigned to tables when used in a markdown file. Adding something like this (based on github styling of markdown tables) would make a table a bit more readable:

                                    ```
                                    .gist-file .gist-file-code .markdown table {
                                    display: block;
                                    width: 100%;
                                    overflow: auto;
                                    word-break: normal;
                                    word-break: keep-all
                                    }

                                    .gist-file .gist-file-code .markdown table th {
                                    font-weight: bold
                                    }

                                    .gist-file .gist-file-code .markdown table th,.gist-file .gist-file-code .markdown table td {
                                    padding: 6px 13px;
                                    border: 1px solid #ddd
                                    }

                                    .gist-file .gist-file-code .markdown table tr {
                                    background-color: #fff;
                                    border-top: 1px solid #ccc
                                    }

                                    .gist-file .gist-file-code .markdown table tr:nth-child(2n) {
                                    background-color: #f8f8f8
                                    }
                                    ```

                                    • Better Labeling for GistBox libraries

                                      I like the ability to save multiple files in a single GistBox library, but would like more control over how those libraries are displayed. A title, comment formatting, etc. Currently the 'title' is the filename of my first snippit.

                                      • Change the icon of "New Gist"

                                        I can't ever find this "New Gist" button. It could use a better icon, with a little + on it or something. The conventional "plain sheet" icon for creating a new file never seemed right to me either.

                                        • Hierarchical organization

                                          I'm using GistBox for code snippets and queries relating to several different products, product families, and then different tasks or issues or problems within each one. It would be really nice to be able to organize my gists hierarchically.
