Resk helps you create gists from your source code.

How to use?

https://medium.com/@maticzav/resk-%EF%B8%8F-ac5d1f92be66

It's so simple! Add a start and end comment to the part of the code you would like to turn into a gist.

For example, if you had a TypeScript file, you could do something like this:

/* resk start "users" */
const users = {
  matic: {
    id: 1,
    name: 'Matic',
    role: 'admin',
  },
}
/* resk end "users" */

/* resk start "libraries" */
const libraries = {
  resk: {
    cool: 9001,
  },
}
/* resk end "libraries" */

This would create two gists - one named users and one named libraries. Besides that, it will also create a dump in .github/resk.json which includes pointers to your latest gists. This way, you don't have to change urls as you push changes.

Supported languages:

  • Typescript/Javascript: /* resk start "<gist>" */, /* resk end "<gist>" */
  • Yaml: # resk start "<gist>", # resk end "<gist>"

Note: resk automatically ignores everything in **/tests/**, **/dist/**, and **/node_modules/**.

Example usage:

on: [push]

jobs:
  build:
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    steps:
      - uses: actions/checkout@v2
      - run: npx resk maticzav/resk
        env:
          GH_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}

or

npx resk <owner>/<repo> [?branch="master"]

or

on: [push]

jobs:
  sync:
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    steps:
      - name: Resk
        uses: maticzav/resk@v2
        env:
          GH_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}

NOTE: You must provide the environment variable GH_TOKEN.

Why resk?

Scissors make a "resk" when you cut the paper. Making gists is like cutting gists out of a big paper.
