Code Snippet DM

Description

Display your code snippets in a stylish way inside your content. The plugin uses shortcodes and also very intuitive TinyMCE interface.

Code Snippet DM was inspired by the Carbon project.
We created a simple way to display your code snippets but also have control over the way it appears, thus making it more stylish.
Also, on the front end in the top right you will find a Copy Code button that allows you to copy to clipboard the entired code snippet.

The plugin provides you with a TinyMCE button that will allow you to display the code or an option to use a shortcode.

You can open the shorcode [dm_code_snippet] and in the content inside and close it [/dm_code_snippet].

Options

There are a number of options that you can use in the shortcode:

  • background with options yes or no will enable/disable the color background (Default yes)
  • background-mobile with options yes or no will enable/disable the color background for mobile devices (Default yes)
  • bg-color accepts any HEX, RGB or RGBA value to change the background color (Default #abb8c3)
  • theme with options light or dark that changes the code editor theme (Default dark)
  • language with options php, javascript, css, markup, clike, python, ruby will highlight the syntaxes based on what you select for your code (Default php)
  • wrap with options yes or no will wrap the code or add a horizontal scroll bar to display it as it is (Default no)

Example of shortcode:

[dm_code_snippet background="yes" background-mobile="yes" bg-color="#abb8c3" theme="light" language="css" wrapped="no"]
.dm-code-snippet.dark {
  background: $default-bg;
  padding: 40px 35px 45px 35px;
  margin: 30px 0;
}
[/dm_code_snippet]

Use the TinyMCE button if you don’t want to add the shortcode yourself. (see Screenshots)
