pelican-gist 0.3.2

Easily embed GitHub Gists in your Pelican articles.

Pelican Gist Tag is a library to make it easy to GitHub Gists in your Pelican blogs.


To install pelican-gist, simply:

$ pip install pelican-gist

Then add a bit of code to your blog configuration:

    # ...
    # ...


In your articles, just add lines to your posts that look like:


This will tell the plugin to insert gist id 3254906 and choose the file into your post. The resulting HTML will look like:

<div class="gist">
    <script src=''></script>
        <pre><code>#!/bin/bash ...</code></pre>

If your gist has only a single file, you can also specify the gist like so:


Notice it is using the id only. The resulting HTML will look like:

<div class="gist">
    <script src=''></script>
        <pre><code>#!/bin/bash ...</code></pre>

There is also support for private gists where they have the gist id that looks like e34db4c532a6cfa1f711.


GIST_CACHE_ENABLED - Specifies whether to cache the gist on disk or not. Default is True. (Optional)


Install the necessary requirements with pip install -r requirements.txt. Once those are installed, you can run the tests with: py.test. So the whole workflow looks like:

$ pip install -r requrements.txt
