How to Add code snippets to blogger ??

This is my first post with something interesting. Although many such posts exist out there, i made a collection of those to make things easy for myself and the guys out there.

I prefer SyntaxHighlighter, a open source project hosted at now hosted at

After you've checked out the the source code, or downloaded a package (Might be outdated, as compared to trunk) from somewhere, its time to add them to blogger.
Its better if you checkout the latest trunk.

Now you need to host the source files somewhere, I am using my google sites  for this job. We can as well use the itself, but the directory structure might change in the future, leaving your blog in a bad look.

Anyways getting to the point, there are some javascript (.js) files in the code (See Scripts Folder e.g. shBrushCpp.js etc). Each of this script is for a particular language(Cpp for c++ , vb for visual basic etc), so u might want all of them or just few depending on your needs. Use as minimum as required, as javascript can take some time to load.

Apart from these language specific files, you need to use shCore.js . Also You need the SyntaxHighlighter.css which defines all the classes for our use. and other file clipboard.swf .

Upload these files to your webhost (or google sites for that matter).

Now add the following snippet before </body>  tag. 
Add you domain name to the to the links before moving on.

Example program in c++ ,

int main()
    printf("Hello World !");
    return 0;
