😌 Beautiful code blocks, at last
I got to visit my mother's ancestral home in a little village today, had a ton of great food and met a bunch of relatives. I also made a ton of progress with adding shiki as my syntax highlighter — I'm actually almost done! You can check out a live preview of how it looks and check out my tweets for a comparison of how it compares to what I was using earlier (prism-react-renderer, incredibly popular and probably your choice of syntax highlighter as well!)
There's still some final touches before I merge this, and you can check out the pull request if that's your cup of chai! 😄
