Get a gist
Get a gist
1 2 3
(character) A gist id, or a gist URL
Curl options passed on to
Object to coerce. Can be an integer (gist id), string (gist id), a gist, or an list that can be coerced to a gist.
If a file is larger than ~1 MB, the content of the file given back
is truncated, so you won't get the entire contents. In the return S3 object
that's printed, we tell you at the bottom whether each file is truncated or
not. If a file is, simply get the
raw_url URL for the file (see
example below), then retrieve from that. If the file is very big, you may
need to clone the file using git, etc.
