Code Highlighting

Whisper uses Hugo’s in-built code highlighting with a github style code highlighting theme.

You can insert code snippets in any markdown file by using standard code fences syntax ie:

function myFunction() {
  var x = document.getElementById('myDIV');
  if ( === 'none') { = 'block';
  } else { = 'none';


Hugo is one of the most popular open-source static site generators. With its amazing speed and flexibility, Hugo makes building websites fun again.
