Discover and share code examples.
GitHub Gists offers a valuable repository of code, applications, and other files that can be shared, manipulated or leveraged by other users. To uncover useful Gists, the system provides a search functionality; however, it relies on the user knowing and following GitHub's code search syntax.
bl.ocks.org offers an alternative way to discover GitHub Gists.
It allows creators to upload their work on Gists and then share it via the bl.ocks.org interface.
Rather than searching code, users can browse through live examples of available Gists.
For example, the following image provides a snapshot of popular Gists hosted on bl.ocks.org:
As well as sharing it live, the bl.ocks.org file can contain other supportive materials, like images or readme files.
