Install, require, use

gem install rack-gist
require 'rack/gist'
use Rack::Gist

It loads standard gist embeds in the background. With jQuery. THE GISTS ARE NOW DIAMONDS!

It uses jQuery. Don't use jQuery? rack-gist loads jQuery form Google for you. Already have jQuery? Ignore it.

use Rack::Gist, :jquery => false

Use something that jQuery conflicts with? Submit me a patch to fix it!

Want to cache your gists?

use Rack::Gist, :cache =>

Or use an existing cache.

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)

  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
