How do I highlight code in the blog

May be you are a developer who has plenty of ideas to share, and you want to start your own blog? In this case you need a code highlighting first!

How do I highlight code here? Well, first of all I import Google code-prettify script, basically every post in this blog starts with the line: <script src=""></script>
To add some Swift code, like this: let reality = true, I use the code tag: <code class="prettyprint lang-swift">let reality = true</code> Here prettyprint feeds our code block to the prettifier and lang-swift is a language hint. In this Stackoverflow answer you can find a list of possible hints.

I apply custom CSS to the code block. In Blogger you can do it following the next path: Theme > Customize > Advanced > Add CSS. code { white-space: pre-wrap; // Required to keep formatting, still can wrap long lines font-size: 15px; line-height: 100%; background-color: #f8f7f1; padding: 4px 2px 4px 1px; } Additionally, to create nice code blocks like above, I use the block class: code.block { display: block; padding: 0.4em 0.15em 0.4em 0.15em; margin: 0.4em 0 0.4em 0; }
