This broke embedding single files from gists :( That's what I get for using Gist in blog posts and websites, I guess.

Sorry about that. We'll get a fix out there ASAP.

Oh shoot:



Two of my favorite gist frontends, broken :(

The API is currently down: https://status.github.com/

Fortunately, I implemented a cache layer on top of GitHub's API recently, so many examples are working on http://bl.ocks.org. But only those that are lucky enough not to get a connection timeout. Hopefully the API will be back up soon!

It seems like the Gist component of the API is either having a hard time or no longer works with JSONP.

I'm also having an issue with Plunker as legacy templates are pulled from Gist and are currently broken.

Agreed- I've used gists heavily in my blog posts and they look pretty terrible right now. I sent feedback to Github via Twitter. Hopefully they'll fix it quickly.

I'm also a bit sad that they're still using document.write for the embeds. That breaks on any site that uses Ajax-like page loading and is bad practice in general.

It was broke for me with the old Gist system. They only let me hotlink a .css file like 5 times.

I don't mean using gists as raw files. I mean embedding gists, using the javascript embed link they give you on the gist site.
