Gists are underrated. I use gists when the code doesn't deserve it's own repository and I often refer to my gists from different devices. So I decided to write a python script using pytablewriter module to compose all my gists in markdown table format so that the README will render it nicely.

Coming to Github Actions I've setup a seperate repo with update_readme.yml to update the table everyday at a specified time.
