When I was making this website I almost chose not to use gists because they wouldn't load for me with turbolinks, but then I was able to find a solution that works every time, and hopefully it is still working and you can read this post.
1. Change the formatting of your gists from the before to the after shown below:
2. Add this coffee script to your applications main js file
Note the turbolinks load function, that ensures it reloads EVERY TIME, not just when the page fully reloads
3. Add this styling so they look identical and the spacing formats the way you want it to
That's it, you're ready to load your github gists while keeping turbolinks on your site, and they look nearly identical.
