Jekyll GitHub Repo Plugin

December 10, 2013

I was actually very surprised that no one up until now had published a plugin like this, I mean it’s not like GitHub is alien to people using Jekyll for their site. Most people I know even use GitHub pages to host their blog. Why not? It’s free and fairly reliable.

In my first attempt of writing the post about my current projects, I just pasted links to a GitHub repository. I did not like that very much, and when I discovered how my friend Christoph displays repositories on his blog, it inspired me to write a Jekyll plugin and publish it so everyone can use it.

If you look at his blog you will notice some similarities ;)

####So here it is:

I realize a GitHub repo might be a bit too much for this. A gist would also do, but I think it’s a nice way to demonstrate the functionality. Feel free to fork it to change the style.

Cheers
