Embeddable Github repos with Repo.js

Posted Jun 26 2012

So, it’s my Birthday (woot). If you didn’t know, now you know. Birthdays always involve presents. So I thought I’d give a present to all of you. For the past 3 or 4 months I’ve worked on and off on a embeddable Github repo plugin. I’ve finally got it to a place I like and so I want to share it with you.

That said, say hello to Repo.js.

Repo.js essentially lets you embed Github repo on your own site. This is great for plugin or library authors that want to showcase the contents of a repo on their project pages etc.. It’s also great for everyone else who just wants to show off their repos on their websites. Definitely check it out and tell me what you think.

Repo.js looks great. Keep refining it as I recon you are on to a winner (e.g. image support, extend it so it could perhaps pass the text content over to an embedded Ace editor or something for a bit richer syntax highlighting)! I suggest you set the width of your content area on your demo page to be a bit wider to accommodate line length in the code examples. Great work tho.
