Is it possible to migrate a Gist to GitHub with Star included?

Asked 5 months ago, Updated 5 months ago, 11 views

I'm trying to migrate what Gist manages to GitHub.
It's easy to create a new repository on the GitHub side and migrate branches there, but
Is there any way to move the Star given to Gist to GitHub?

I'm afraid it's impossible. It's hard to prove it's impossible, but I can give you some indirect evidence.

First of all, the transition from gist to GitHub does not have any special support as a function of GitHub, and if you do, you simply register a new remote repository as a function of Git itself.

Also, I think star is more of a repository itself than a repository's content. GitHub·gist It's easy to replicate the repository using the fork function in each service, but star information doesn't take over. I mean, it doesn't span between services.

Finally, if you search GitHub's own promotional blog, you can't find any article that looks like it.

From the above, there is a high probability that there is no way to move from gist to GitHub with star.
