Obsidian helps us manage our notes and other kinds of writings. With everything stored in a local directory, we can easily backup our knowledge base with tools like Dropbox. But still we need a way to share our writings, this tutorial shows a simple way to share notes with Github gist that only requires two steps to set up.
- Make sure you have a Github account.

brew install gistif you have
- Login with
gist --login. It would ask you for your Github username and password to obtain OAuth2 access token, but it won’t save your password as you can see in the source code.
