Using Gists for Sourcecode examples in WordPress

By | 14/01/2014

What I really don’t like that much in WordPress is, that there is no really perfect way to display source code. Today I stumbled over the idea to use gists for displaying source code in WordPress. The advantage is, you can use for exampe PHPStorm for creating your source code, create a gist right out of the IDE like shown in the screen, and use the plugin Embed Github Gist for displaying the source code in your blog article.

Screen:

Github-gist

Have fun, perhaps it helps someone 😉
