Quickly add syntax highlighting to your Ghost blog using Prism.js

  1. Login as admin of your ghost instance.
  2. Navigate to Code Injection settings.
  3. Paste this CSS code under Blog Header or you can grab a Prism.js theme from their website.

    code[class*=language-],pre[class*=language-]{color:#000;background:0 0;text-shadow:0 1px #fff;font-family:Consolas,Monaco,'Andale Mono','Ubuntu Mono',monospace;text-align:left;white-space:pre;word-spacing:normal;word-break:normal;word-wrap:normal;line-height:1.5;-moz-tab-size:4;-o-tab-size:4;tab-size:4;-webkit-hyphens:none;-moz-hyphens:none;-ms-hyphens:none;hyphens:none}code[class*=language-] ::-moz-selection,code[class*=language-]::-moz-selection,pre[class*=language-] ::-moz-selection,pre[class*=language-]::-moz-selection{text-shadow:none;background:#b3d4fc}code[class*=language-] ::selection,code[class*=language-]::selection,pre[class*=language-] ::selection,pre[class*=language-]::selection{text-shadow:none;background:#b3d4fc}@media print{code[class*=language-],pre[class*=language-]{text-shadow:none}}pre[class*=language-]{padding:1em;margin:.5em 0;overflow:auto}:not(pre)>code[class*=language-],pre[class*=language-]{background:#f5f2f0}:not(pre)>code[class*=language-]{padding:.1em;border-radius:.3em;white-space:normal}.token.cdata,.token.comment,.token.doctype,.token.prolog{color:#708090}.token.punctuation{color:#999}.namespace{opacity:.7}.token.boolean,.token.constant,.token.deleted,.token.number,.token.property,.token.symbol,.token.tag{color:#905}.token.attr-name,.token.builtin,.token.char,.token.inserted,.token.selector,.token.string{color:#690}.language-css .token.string,.style .token.string,.token.entity,.token.operator,.token.url{color:#a67f59;background:hsla(0,0%,100%,.5)}.token.atrule,.token.attr-value,.token.keyword{color:#07a}.token.function{color:#DD4A68}.token.important,.token.regex,.token.variable{color:#e90}.token.bold,.token.important{font-weight:700}.token.italic{font-style:italic}.token.entity{cursor:help}

  4. Include this script tag in the Blog Footer section.

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/prism/1.5.1/prism.min.js"></script>  

...and that's it! You add syntax to your code blocks like so:

```language-javascript
var hello="world";```
