Integrate various Github API-driven shortcodes into your pages.


Because the public github API is rate limited, this plugin will download and keep a cached version of the .json files and readme markdown from API calls locally, and will need to be deleted in the admin panel when a change needs to be reflected. You can select a file and submit to delete them.

Composer Updating

This plugin includes http://getcomposer.org and an autoloader to implement the http://parsedown.org/ library.

To save a bit of space, composer.phar isn't included with this plugin.

Parsedown is [https://github.com/erusev/parsedown/blob/master/LICENSE.txt](MIT licensed)
