The use of gistup is a new concept for me - and I pulled the gistup from npm and tried to use it and it failed. I did set up the key but i get

throw error;
^

Error: Command failed: git config --get remote.'origin'.url || true

Not saying you can solve this but is the purpose just to show how you have made space for code for everybody to see. Or are you intending in future sessions going to use gistup. If yes then maybe you could provide more info on gistup setup etc.

I am getting no end of errors trying to get gistup working on Windows, under the cmd shell and under MINGW64.
I finally gave up and am trying it with gistup-norepo.

It is a shame that nobody tested this under windows, and it is also a shame that those of us using windows are left behind. Why depend on things that are not readily available for everyone?
