The GitHub plugin for Mylyn was built on the basis of new Issues 2.0 features , such as project phases of tasks responsible for tasks, notifications and filtering, as well as new APIs for tasks and Gists . This initial release supports creating, updating, commenting, searching, and monitoring tasks inside Eclipse. Gists are also supported , now you can select text in the editor or select a file and select “Create Gist” in the context menu. Gist will be created in the background and you will be shown a pop-up notification with a link.

You can also browse and search Gists from Eclipse, open Gist files in the Eclipse editor, and add or update them. If you want to work with Gists as Git repositories, just click the “Clone” button on the toolbar and the Gist will be cloned locally and imported as an Eclipse project.

The plugin is available in the Eclipse Marketplace . Many thanks to @aniszczyk and @smilebase for their input. This open source project is part of EGit , any input is welcome. If you want to start using the plugin, read the instructionsto find out more. The final release as version 1.0 will be released as part of Eclipse Indigo next month.
