If you are a programmer who uses GitHub then why not share your coding projects via your WordPress blog by adding a snapshot
of your repository on any page or post using shortcode.
Simply install the plugin and add the shortcode [gitrepo author=”author” repo=”repo”] to the desired location; changing the attributes to that of your desired repository.
- Cached using Transient
- Styles appearance with a GitHub banner
- Shows the repository description
- Adds a link to the repository on GitHub
- Shows statistics for Forks, Stars, Open Issues
- Provides a link to the latest tag (if one exists)
- Displays the code to clone the repository
- Can be used with or without a GitHub API Token
This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.
- Upload the plugin files to the
/wp-content/plugins/plugin-namedirectory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
- Add the shortcode [wpplugin author=”author” repo=”repo”] to the desired location
- If desired, add a GitHub API Token and/or alter the cache timeout on the admin page Settings->F13 GitHub Repo Shotcode

No… Although it is recommended, especially if you wish to have the cache timeout set to a low value, or if you use multiple instances of the shortcode.
