I have been involved (voluntarily) with the development of the Condenser & Wallet apps (that are powering https://hive.blog and https://wallet.hive.blog) for quite a while now. There are other great frontends to Hive out there such as https://peakd.com and https://ecency.com but I have always been more or less faithful with the Condenser.
This is a regular report on my new contributions. Some of the new work below might still be in test and not yet deployed.
Add highlight syntax to code blocks in blog posts
There was a request for syntax highlighting on posts. We indeed have some developers sharing code on the platform. So I tested integrating PrismJS and HighlightJS. I picked HighlightJS due to the way it works nicely with the Condenser.
However, there were some concerns that HighlightJS package is 270KB+ which might be a problem for mobile phone users on a slow bandwidth. So this change might not get approved for deployment to production. See my next contribution below instead.
Supporting GitHub's GIST embeds
@good-karma suggested that instead of highlighting syntax, we could simply add support for GIST embedded views. GIST is a tool allowing you to share code snippets or data excerpts. It also has syntax highlighting so integrating it to the Condenser is lightweight.
There is one downside to the method though: old posts not using GIST won't have their code highlighted.
Thank you @mahdiyari for helping with testing
