I’ve been meaning to get back to writing, but every time I open up the WP editor, I always tend to feel “ rushed ” ? Which is something I do not necessarily consider healthy. 😉 So I‘ve tried WP’s post by email feature, and since I know WP supports markdown I finally thought,I had lucked out ! Because I love markdown, better yet … I‘ll source the file I used to create this post, from my cloudup account here.
But now comes the tricky part : No matter what I tried — whether I used Gmail’s plain text, or rich text feature — it always came out wrong. That is : WP wrapped all my links in regular html. 😦
So what does this all mean ? It means : That I, as of yet, still can’t focus on my writing — because I’m still too busy worrying about its style, and format. 😦
Thus came along markdown here, while providing a nice little addon for chrome, and it seems to be promising. Then again : While composing a new email in Gmail, neither the shortcut
ctrl+alt+M, nor the corresponding
right-click action seemed to work ? It does help, and work, to open —
shift+click — your composer in a new window. ← Always a catch. 😆
↑ Nevermind the last paragraph, as I figured out the cause ! All I needed to do, was to restart my browser. 😆 😆 😆
I use the
<pre> method :
<pre class="brush: bash"> ~/Wisdom # of Confucius </pre>
Here follow some examples, as given on the markdown here page.
s = "Python syntax highlighting" print s
No language indicated, so no syntax highlighting. But let's throw in a <b>tag</b>.
PS : WP still seems to choke on the
<abbr> …</abbr> codes I use :
