What would you like to do?
Example of how to embed a Gist on GitHub Pages using Jekyll.

Here's an example of how to embed a Gist on GitHub Pages:

{% gist 5555251 %}

All you need to do is copy and paste the Gist's ID from the URL (here 5555251), and add it to a gist tag surrounded by {% and %}.

And here's what it would look like rendered:

Rendered Gist

The rendered output looks odd for the gist link

I wonder if being meta makes this harder to understand.

Wow, this addition looks useful.

Is there a way to embed a single file? Yes there is!

{% gist 5555251 %}

It works by installing

But I prefer to use:

<script src=""></script>
<script src=""></script>
