Jekyll GitHub gists

Software

Yo dawg, I heard you render gists. So I linked your gist in a gist you see nothing with NoScript

Given its origins, I should have known Jekyll would let you render gists with some simple syntax. To get all meta, I rendered this gist using the gist liquid markup:

{% gist RubenSchade/3f8e385647c1ded6bfe6 %}
Github Gist

Well, almost. That’s using my own styling for a plain pre tag, and a link to the gist. Inline gists rely on JavaScript, without graceful degradation. Land on this page with NoScript (or an equivalent security tool), and you’ll see absolutely nothing.

Oh well, sounded like a nice idea.

Author bio and support

Me!

Ruben Schade is a technical writer and IaaS engineer in Sydney, Australia who refers to himself in the third person in bios. Wait, not BIOS… my brain should be EFI by now.

The site is powered by Hugo, FreeBSD, and OpenZFS on OrionVM, everyone’s favourite cloud infrastructure provider.
