Github Embed

Description

Plugin that allows you to embed details from github just by pasting in the URL as you would any other embed source. Currently supports:

  • Repositories
  • User profiles
  • Project milestone summaries
  • Project contributors

Coming soon:

  • Gists…

The plugin provides very basic styling, but adds classes so you can style as you see fit. If anyone has some ideas for a better default stylesheet – pull requests welcome!

The main development is all going on on GitHub.
