See what I did there? πŸ˜‰

I’ve talked about creating your own script repository in the past. I like having some sort of structure. GitHub goes further. It also helps with version control and so much more!. My idea of version control is adding -v# after any script, don’t judge me…

These days everything seems to be in GitHub! The PowerShell DSC Resource Modules are there. Azure PowerShell Module & Templates are there. You can even deploy Azure Resources from GitHub! You can also use Git for continuous deployment for website content/apps.

Visual Studio supports GitHub as well for continuous delivery

I just discovered Gist! Doug Finke created a GUI to help create a template to extract Data from text files. I noticed that the code was straight out of GitHub. So I did a little bit of googling and sure enough, I found out how! Gist lets you share snippets of code with others. All you need to do is copy & paste the url and you’re good to go!

Best part of Gist is having you code “As-Is”. Using WordPress plugins sometimes gets the “<#” , “#>” or “&” wrong, replacing it with HTML equivalent. This way you’ll never have to worry about your code being mutilated anymore! Sweet!!!

Here’s an articleΒ to help you on your way getting started with GitHub.

GitHub is (going to be) one of those things that you need to master…

Hope it’s worth something to you…

    Hi Irwin, I have been planning to start using Gist for my blog too already for a while. After reading your post I finally got started. I’ve forked Doug’s repo and made some minor changes to make it work for me. Thanks a lot πŸ™‚
