backtick_codeblock filter you can use Github's lovely back tick syntax highlighting blocks.
Simply start a line with three back ticks followed by a space and the language you're using.
``` [language] [title] [url] [link text] code snippet ```
[language]- Used by the syntax highlighter. Passing 'plain' disables highlighting. (Supported languages.)
[title]- Add a figcaption to your code block.
[url]- Download or reference link for your code.
[Link text]- Text for the link, defaults to 'link'.
These options don't depend on any previous option and order does not matter.
start:#- Line numbers begin at # (useful for using snippets to reference longer code).
mark:#,#-#- Mark one or more lines of code with the class name "marked". Accepts one number, numbers separated by commas, and number ranges. Example
mark:1,5-8will mark lines 1,5,6,7,8. Note: If you've changed the beginning line number be sure these match rendered line numbers
linenos:false- Do not add line numbers to highlighted code.
1. Here's an example without setting the language.
``` $ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:imathis/octopress.git # fork octopress ```
2. This example uses syntax highlighting and a code link.
