  1. change name of snippet

    It would be good if the name of the snippet was decoupled from the first file name. And I can't change it unless I change the first file name.

    • Keep code snippets collapsed !

      Its to hard to navigate in this small section of the windows dedicated to the code snippets and when all are expanded, it becomes very difficult.
      I wish all codes are collapsed and I could copy easily just by looking at the file name.

          • Gitlab.com gists

            Would be great if we could interface with Gitlab.com gists too.

                  Could offer some analytics so my group can track which gists we make most use of over time.

                  • Propper coloring of variables using the 'ñ' and 'Ñ' chars in PHP

                    Ñ and ñ are valid chars for variable and function declarations in PHP, however the color highlighting doesn't work well in GistBox :-) Not a major issue, I know, it is just to let you know.

                    Example:

                    $libros->añadeFiltro("year(fecha)=2011");

                    • Can't copy gists to the same library/group

                      Copying between groups works well, but leaving the checkbox(es) unchecked and clicking "Copy" doesn't do anything. I'd assume this should duplicate a gist within the same context, but if that's not the intention the UI should change (i.e. require at least one checkbox, disable the button when none are checked). Basically a Fork/Copy for the same context could be helpful.

                      • popup when leaving unsaved content

                        A popup alert should be invoked once a user tries to leave/refresh when editing a gist. This happened to me just right now. I already wrote a lot and I accidentally hit the refresh command. The progress wasn't saved or drafted. :(

                            • After deleting snippet, the focus should be set on the next/previous snippet on the list

                              Currently the list of snippet scrolls to top, what makes cleaning up 200 gists extremely tedious

                                    • The Chinese input tool support is not well, please fix it.

                                      When I input Chinese with Microsoft Chinese input tool, I need double input the space button to input the Chinese, and it remain a extra space as a result. The feeling and input speed are terrible, because I have to delete the extra space. My English is not well, so if anything confusing, contact me.

                                      • Have an option to download one, several or all gist files

                                        It would be really handy to be able to download multiple files

                                        • One click to run gist in shell (also maybe with an ability to pass environment variables)

                                          Pass from chrome app, directly to other opened shell window. I know it maybe hard for security reasons, but maybe not impossible.
                                          I use gist to manage shell scripts, as I cannot remember all ..
