Line Numbers in Hugo Codeblocks

I want my code blocks on the blog to sometimes have line numbers. Looking at the Hugo docs here and here led me to the linenos argument. While we’d start our code blocks like (```python)1, all I need more is to add the line number argument like so. Vanilla code block … print(f""" “It’s silly to try to escape other people’s faults. They are inescapable. Just try to escape your own....

Thank God for Noah

This James Somers post, made me realise why my dictionary word lookups were so much less engaging than when I was a kid. From the post … […] go look up “flash” in Webster’s (the edition I’m using is the 1913). The first thing you’ll notice is that the example sentences don’t sound like they came out of a DMV training manual (“the lights started flashing”) — they come from Milton and Shakespeare and Tennyson (“A thought flashed through me, which I clothed in act”)...

I use the Drafts app on my phone and tablet to slice and dice all manner of text and to send it to various locations as I please.

Line Breaks on My Microblog

I use a (not quite) hidden blog to collect all sorts of bits and bobs and to (selectively and automatically) publish them to my fediverse or twitter accounts. The one thing that constantly bugged me, was that it would not accept line breaks to differentiate between paragraphs. Like this post, here. I don’t know if it’s my theme or a Hugo thing.
