Users who migrated from GistBox and have authenticated via GitHub will have their snippets sync automatically to Gist on updates (create, edit and delete). For guidance on how Gist sync works in general, see this article.
What does sync do?
For new snippets: Cacher will try to create a Gist with the description and file fields filled in. Note that snippet titles are specific to Cacher and will not be updated in the Gist.
For snippet updates: Cacher will update the corresponding Gist with those changes.
For deleted snippets: Cacher will delete the corresponding Gist.
Who can use Gist sync?
- Users on any pricing tier AND
- Have signed in using GitHub AND
- Have migrated their data from GistBox
Setting up Sync
Sign into GistBox and click on Migrate My Data.
On the Cacher Sign Up screen, click to Sign Up with GitHub.
Check off the items you'd like to import to Cacher and click Start Migration.
In the snippet header portion of the Cacher interface, you will see a Sync to Gist control. This allows you to view whether the snippet is synced, un-sync the snippet or to update it with the latest version of the corresponding Gist.
