Chrome Extension : Copy To Gist

Copy to Gist is a Chrome extension that lets you copy selected text from a page to a gist. You can use it to streamline the process of adding gists to medium articles. For example, the following Javascript code was selected, copied to a gist and pasted below.

var foo = function(){console.log("hello world");


The extension does require you to authorize your Github account. It needs an access token that has Gist permissions to create gists.
