I just stumbled across a cool way to oEmbed a Gist directly into a WordPress post. This means that rather than copying the js embed code from a Gist I can simply paste out the link to a Gist instead. Nice
I had a little trouble getting it to work though. First I had to remove an extra ” in line 12 then the script it generated just showed up as plain text on the front-end, but it got me playing with the idea since I like to use Gists.
After a little searching to see what else was out there, I found out that Jetpack offers Gist oEmbed shortcodes as one of it’s many features. Sweet.
