Github Gist is a code hosting website that makes coding social. A ‘Gist’ is a snipit of code, and we use it to host scripts for BowlerStudio.

BowlerStudio can load code from any Github Gist just by navigating to a website with a Gist embededded. To edit this file first step is to make a copy. This will call Git Fork in the background. If you have already forked this gist, you will be brought to your existing copy.

When editing your version of the code, Run will save and run the code.
