We’re introducing calendar-based versioning for our REST API, so we can keep evolving our API, whilst still giving integrators a smooth migration path and plenty of time to update their integrations.
We’re now appending the gist name at the end of its raw url. That means it’s dead-simple to serve greasemonkey (or greasekit) scripts directly from gist.github.com. I was able to write my first script and install it in less than five minutes:
If you have greasemonkey installed and click the “view raw” link in the embedded gist above, your browser will ask you if you want to install the script.
Note: You won’t see the new raw url until your gist cache is updated, so you can either wait until it falls out of the cache, or just make a simple change to your gist to update it immediately.
