Jekyll GitHub gists

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.
