Beautify your code with pygments
Ever wonder how I colour-coded my code blocks with colours? CSS? That’s almost right. WordPress does not support css customisation for standard accounts, but you can get around with this limitation by using inline css. Here’s a good post talking about this technique: http://www.scratch99.com/2007/06/wordpress-simple-css-text-boxes-in-posts/
Inspired by that post, here’s how I do to make my snippets colourful:
1. Download Pygments from http://pypi.python.org/pypi/Pygments [ the .tar.gz file. The pygments site seems to be down at this moment ]
2. Untar it and install it as root
3. After the installation you are ready to style your code. Some examples:
4. Copy and paste the html code from above step into the code block in your post. Preview it if needed. Then publish.
