Template:code

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

{{{2}}}


This is a convenience template, which formats a short inline snippet of code with syntax highlighting of a given language. The language is specified as the first positional parameter (as understood by the <syntaxhighlight> tag, with "js" being a shorthand for javascript and "py" for python), while the second is the snippet to format. Alternatively, you can specify the snippet as a named parameter with an empty name (|=...) in case the code contains an equal sign.

It is similar to Wikipedia's w:Template:code, but the argument order is opposite.

Example[edit]

{{code|js|=(65535).toString(16) === 'ffff'}} renders as (65535).toString(16) === 'ffff'.
