I’m spending the week-end on the Win7 side of my MBP’s hard disk, so I decided I should try the Windows Live suite, including Mail (neat), Photo Gallery (serviceable) and Writer, which I am using to write this post.
Inserting links is straightforward enough. I wonder about code though:
y = x+2
Well, yeah, it works, but it is ugly. However, it turns out that Windows Live Writer has a neat extension system. Moreover, a kind soul wrote a plugin specifically tailored for use with WordPress. In particular, the plugin inserts the right “shortcode,’’ so you get WordPress.com’s built-in code rendering. Here’s what you get:
def pyfunc(x): y = x+2 return y*x
For other blogging platforms, GeSHi is also available. However, it does not seem to work as well with WordPress.com blogs.
