File Inliner

This plugin displays the content of a file in a post.

This plugin displays the content of a file in a post. The content of the file (called a "snippet") is put in a <pre></pre> block by default.

It has the following advantages over pasting the content of the file in your post yourself:

  • When the file is modified, no need to modify the posts referring to it
  • Indentation is preserved by default (useful to show code snippets)
  • Can optionally provide a link to the file (no need to copy-paste your snippet)

If requested (see the preserveformat parameter), the content of the file is put in a <div></div> block, with each line (delimited by the carriage return) in its own <coded_p></coded_p> block.

Usage

Syntax: [file lang="some_lang" start="a_line_number" end="a_line_number" link="on_or_off" style="some_style_properties" preserveformat="on_or_off"]path/to/your/file[/file]

Note: The order of the attributes is mandatory!

Example: Inlining of a file

In your post, write [file]path/to/your/file[/file]. That's it!

Example: Using a syntax highlighter plugin

If you write [file lang="cpp"]path/to/your/file[/file] (for instance), and if the syntax highlighter plugin you use supports the <pre lang="*"></pre> syntax (most does), then the content of your file will be processed by the syntax highlighter plugin as usual.

Example: Provide a link to the file

If you write [file link="on"]path/to/your/file[/file], a link will be automatically added to the top left of the text area.

Example: Inline a subset of a file

If you write [file start="10" end="20"]path/to/your/file[/file], only the lines 10 to 20 of the file will be displayed. You can omit the start (ie. "from beginning to line 20") or the end (ie. "from line 10 to the end of the file") if you want.

Example: Set the color of the text to red

In your post, write [file style="color: #FF0000;"]path/to/your/file[/file].

Example: Prevent the plugin to process a [file][/file] block

Just write [file off]your content[/file].

Note: The 'off' attribute must come BEFORE any other ones.
