Pretty new in this community but loving it so far. I found Write.as is the easiest way I found to set up a blog that also has code syntax highlighting which is huge for me since I like writing coding tutorials.
To give thanks I have a small contribution. I wanted to add analytics to my blog, I use Fathom Analytics and they only give you a code snippet with a script tag like this:
<!-- Fathom - beautiful, simple website analytics --> <script src="https://cdn.usefathom.com/script.js" data-site="WHATEVER" defer></script> <!-- / Fathom -->
So, being a developer like I am, I just converted that above snippet intro vanilla JS, it turned out like this:
const script = document.createElement('script'); script.setAttribute('defer', true); script.setAttribute('src', 'https://cdn.usefathom.com/script.js'); script.setAttribute('data-site', 'YOUR_SITE_ID_HERE'); document.head.appendChild(script);
You can also do this with CSS if you want to add fonts, for example I added a Google font like this earlier today:
const font = document.createElement('link'); font.setAttribute('rel', 'stylesheet') font.setAttribute('href', 'https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=IBM+Plex+Mono:wght@400;700&family=IBM+Plex+Sans:wght@400;700&family=IBM+Plex+Serif:wght@700&display=swap') document.head.appendChild(font);
I have tested it on my end and it works! Maybe it can help someone else .
FOR MODS: Let me know if this post should be into another category and I’ll be happy to move it, I looked over all the available topics but I didn’t find anything that fit, that’s why I put it here.
