YouTube Embeds

YouTube videos can be embedded into your blog post simply by pasting a valid YouTube link into the editor. No additional steps required!

Code Syntax Highlighting

Our editor automatically highlights code in most major programming languages! You just need to embed a code snippet using the "Code" icon in the toolbar. While the code won't be highlighted within the editor; it will be highlighted when you publish or preview the post.
