Haha, I surprisingly reached a pretty similar solution with one of the themes I made for mkws.
Looks nice! :)
Small feedback: it might be worth putting a screenshot in the gist. Clicking through to codepen needs a captcha, at least for me!
Looking at the codepen demo, the combined font size and margin/padding are too much. Text in the list elements is 2-4 words per line.
Meta Q: Since when did gists require logging in to view?
works fine without logging in for me (firefox Android, private browsing)
Android, android browser, regular tab, works just fine
Just tried on a browser without any cookies set and did not have to login.
I’m more concerned that the repo name references 55 bytes and not 58 in the title..
