Gist is GitHub's "paste" service, where any set of simple files can be pasted into a web form and saved. Gist files may be named. If they are given the .user.js suffix, then the raw link for the gist will serve perfectly as an install. HTTPS is available and used by default.

The Whole Internet

Any server across the entire web may host user scripts. For Greasemonkey, the only requirement is that the (entire) URL ends with .user.js and that it is not served with a text/html content type. This even works in the fragment, so you can append #.user.js to any URL serving a script to trigger installation. Servers supporting HTTPS are best, in order to be compatible with Greasemonkey's built in update checker.


To make the URL end with .user.js you can add the fragment, as mentioned above.
