At GitHub we love using Gist to share code. Whether it’s a simple snippet or a full app, Gist is a great way to get your point across. And the fact that every Gist is a fully forkable git repository makes it even better.
Everything, because we rewrote it. But here are some of our favorite new features.
Gist, like GitHub, is now powered by the Ace editor. Syntax highlighted, indentation aware editing is now at your fingertips.
(Try dragging a file of code from your desktop to the editor for even more fun.)
You can now view the full history of every Gist, complete with diffs. Never be blamed for sloppy coding again.
The new Gist tells you which forks have activity, making it easier to find interesting changes from coworkers or complete strangers.
There’s more new stuff but you’ll have to poke around to find it.
We hope you enjoy the new Gist as much as we do!
