gist-it.sudarmuthu.com  –  Embed files from a github repository like a gist

Description

gist-it.sudarmuthu.com lets you take a file from your GitHub repository and embed it into any webpage, just like a gist

Syntax highlighting by google-code-prettify

Usage

Take a github file url and prefix it with http://gist-it.sudarmuthu.com and embed the result within a <script> tag:

<script src="http://gist-it.sudarmuthu.com/http://github.com/$file"></script>
  1. $file should follow the github repository pattern of $user/$repository/raw/master/$path
  2. github/$file is a shorthand for http://github.com/$file and works in the same way

Additional customization is possible by including one or more of the following in the query string:

slice (optional)

Supply a slice parameter to show only a particular portion of the file:

slice=0:-2 Show the first line up to and including the second to last line
slice=24:100 Show lines 24 through 100
slice=0 Show only the first line of the file
footer (optional)

Use the footer parameter to control the appearance of the footer:

footer=no
footer=0
Hide the footer
footer=minimal Show the footer without "This Gist brought to you by gist-it."

Example

function Xyzzy() {
    return "Nothing happens";
}
