What is the difference between github and gist?

What is the purpose of gist and how is it different from regular code sharing/maintaining using github?

Answer Source

GitHub is the entire site. Gists are a particular service offered on that site, namely code snippets akin to pastebin. However, everything is driven by git revision control, so gists also have complete revision histories.
