Formatting Code

To insert code examples like this:

arc> (+ 3 4)

select the code to highlight it, click on "Format" in the menu, and select "Blockquote code".  You may then need to click on the "I" (italic) button to turn off italic.

You can also enter inline code by selecting the text and clicking on "Format" / "Code".

Github Gists

To insert a github gist like this:

A gist from GitHub

  1. Create or find a gist on github.  From the URL, note its number: https://gist.github.com/846856
  2. Edit a page in this Wiki.  Click on "Insert" in the menu, and select "More gadgets..." at the bottom.  Choose "Add Gadget by URL" in the left sidebar.  Enter http://gadgets.derquinse.net/gist-github/gist-github-gadget.xml for the URL.
  3. Enter the Gist # (846856 in my example).  Choose whether you want to give the gist a title header or not, and if you do, what you want the title to be.
  4. If you'd like the embedded gist to be indented (as is shown here), click on the left border of the gist.  You should get get a giant cursor blinking at the height of the gist.  (If you have trouble getting the giant cursor, click above the gist, and use the arrow keys to move down).  Then you can click on the Increase Indent button in the toolbar.
