After visiting Brian Carper’s Blog for an interesting discussion on CLOS vs Ruby I noticed how slick the site looked. There was some slick wordpress magic going on too, he had a neat tag cloud in his side and that I’ve been seeing pop up in all sorts of places, but also, and quite impressively, he had a syntax highlighter for code he posted. Quite cool.
So I did some Googleling and found out if I upgraded to wordpress 2.3.1 I’d automatically get tagging and the tag cloud because it was new and now integrated in wordpress (previously achieved through 3rd party plugins) so I did that. I then converted all my categories into tags, a process that had a minor glitch in that it created a tag for my default category but then wouldn’t import from it (thus destroying it) because it was the default. Once I had changed defaults, it wouldn’t import from it because the tag already existed. I had to install a 3rd party plugin to delete the empty tag so I could import into it again (and I had to comment out some error code in the plugin because it wasn’t letting me delete the tag for some reason).
Then I found CodeHilighter for wordpress, exactly what I was looking for. So lets give that a test.
def helloworld(): print "Hello world, from Python"
(defun hello-world () (format t "Hello world, from Lisp"))
Cool. So thanks for Brain’s kick ass blog for pushing me to go look at some new and fun wordpress toys.
