Document 360 uses Prisim.js for syntax highlighting, and supports syntax highlighting in code blocks for languages like:

  • HTML
  • C#
  • Java
  • JavaScript
  • XML
  • JSON
  • CSS
  • SQL
  • Python
  • Markdown
  • PHP
  • PowerShell

For a complete list supported languages, see Prisim's Supported Languages documentation.

Creating code blocks

In the Markdown editor, you can create fenced code blocks by placing triple backticks ``` before and after the included code snippet.

To apply a language's specific syntax highlighting, include the language shortcode (see list below) after the first 3 backticks.

For example:

[your code snippet]

In the WYSIWYG editor, you can create a code block by clicking the code block icon and selecting your desired language.

Language shortcodes

  • C: c
  • C++: cpp, c++
  • C#: csharp
  • CSS: css
  • CoffeeScript: coffeescript
  • HTML: html
  • JSON: json
  • Java: java
  • JavaScript: javascript, js
  • Objective-C: objective-c, obj-c, objc
  • Objective-C++: objc++
  • PHP: php
  • Perl: perl, pl
  • Python 3: python3, py3
  • Python: python, py
  • Ruby: ruby, rb
  • Snobol: snobol
  • XML: xml

Indentation and code blocks

Any text indented at least 4 spaces will be treated as a code block. This is helpful for longer code snippets. This code will not be syntax-highlighted, but instead will be shown as plain text.

The following code block is created using indents instead of backticks.

def test():
    logging.error('Test failed')

Code block examples

C# block

using System;
namespace HelloWorld
    class Hello 
        static void Main() 
            Console.WriteLine("Hello World!");

            // Keep the console window open in debug mode.
            Console.WriteLine("Press any key to exit.");

Javascript block

function $initHighlight(block, cls) {
try {
if (\bno\-highlight\b/) != -1)
return process(block, true, 0x0F) +
` class="${cls}"`;
} catch (e) {
/* handle exception */
export $initHighlight;
