Argghh,, why do people use medium for articles about code? It has no good support for actually displaying it.
Author here. I’ve tried a bunch of tools and platforms for blogging but they either have poor code support or they use Markdown. I like Markdown for docs but I find it harder to write my thoughts out since I’m worried about formatting. I picked Medium because it displays non-code really well, supports inline comments, and it does a decent job of displaying code. I don’t find syntax highlighting to be much of a boon so I don’t miss that much.
This article has few listings and each of them is rather small. Medium does the job in this case. And it’s probably easier to promote your articles on Medium.
What do you find lacking? It certainly doesn’t do highlighting, but an argument could be made that that is distracting in the context of short snippets anyway… Is there something else?
