How to format and syntax highlight code in html


#1

I’ve written my own blog (I know typo is better, but I wanted the
experience of writing my own) and I want to add syntax highlighting to
it. I’ve read about using the ruby gem syntax but I can’t figure out
how to implement it. I’ve also wondered if it could be used in my case.
How does it work when you have a long line of code but the

your
writing in is narrow? How would you fix this problem?

Has no one tried to display code on thier blog? I know that there must
be a good way of doing it.

Take a look at the typo source and browse the code related to text
filter used for syntax.

There are lots of good things to learn from viewing Typo code besides
this too… :slight_smile:
