      • Show user who edit a Gist

        When any user edit a gist, I see create date, create user and update date. But I don`t see who updated the gist.

        I think to can see user who updated a gist is necessary.

        Thanks

          • Add favicon

            It would be nice if the favicon worked correctly, so I could find the gistbox tab easier. Extra points if it resizes correctly and works in the chromeos app menu and toolbar.

            • 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.

                    • Swap out ZeroClipboard for clipboard.js

                      Flash is a security risk nowadays so more and more people will have it disabled, therefore breaking the Copy button. clipboard.js looks like a solid replacement.

                        • Open the app in full screen

                          When you open the app, it opens in a small screen of of 1185 pixels wide and 760 pixels heigh.

                          Usually when you click the little square icon and close any screen on your system and open it up again, it remembers that last setting (full screen).

                          GistBox doesn't seem to remember that settting and keeps opening up in a small screen.

                          On large monitors this can be annyoing if you want to have it open up full screen or whatever size you need.

                          • Clicking back on my mouse breaks UI

                            Clicking the back button my mouse breaks the UI, I start in All Gists and click into Starred gists, then click the back button, when I do, then the Starred Gists and All Gists buttons become unclickable/perma-clicked and I have to refresh gists or refresh the entire page to get it working again.

                              • 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.

                                • 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.

                                      • 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.
