#6: Tools of the Trade

Before I get too far along in these screencasts, I thought I would introduce you a little to my working environment and explain the tools that I use. First off, I work on a Mac, so these tools are Mac software. This isn't an endorsement of any particular working environment, I just want everyone to know, see, and understand what these programs are that I will be switching back and forth between in upcoming podcasts.

Posting Code

Markdown is supported in the comment area, so you can write inline code in backticks like `this` or multiline blocks of code in in triple backtick fences like ```this```. You don't need to escape code in backticks, Markdown does that for you.

Sadly, it's kind of broken. WordPress only accepts a subset of HTML in comments, which makes sense, because certainly some HTML can't be allowed, like <script> tags. But this stripping happens before the comment is processed by Markdown (via Jetpack). It seems to me that would be reversed, because after Markdown processes code in backticks, it's escaped, thus safe. If you think you can fix this issue, get in touch!

If you need to make sure the code (typically HTML) you post absolutely posts correctly, escape it and put it within <pre><code> tags.
