Blog Code Formatting Tool

10 years, 7 months ago

I've made some improvements to a tool I wrote a while ago which prepares code snippets for inclusion within a blog post. Code is formatted with line numbers, indentation is preserved and special characters are replaced with entities where necessary.

The interface is still a little crude and I'm in two minds about the semantic correctness of using an ordered list for the numbering but the output certainly looks nice.

  • I've just created the same tool like this, but more beautiful and colorful. More option for you to choose which color is appropriate to your blog or website. Check it here:
