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.

This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.

/wp-content/plugins/plugin-namedirectory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
