Code formatting tests in CoderLegion

posted 5 min read

CoderLegion has an article editor that can format text. We will see the editor when we press the Post An Article button. In this article, we will talked about how to format text or code using the code formatter button and see how it looks like when html is finally rendered.

1.  How it is done in coderlegion editor #

From the coderlegion editor, follow the following steps.

  • Paste code
  • Select the code
  • Press the {} button in the code editor. See image 1.

Image 1

2.  Output #

1.  Python code #

"""Python module docstring
"""

class Study:
    def __init__(self, name):
        self.name = name

    def get_name(self):
        """Get name"""
        return self.name


# Declare name
name = 'Peter'

mystrlist = ['USA', 'Algeria']
mynumlist = [4, 8, 6]
myfloatlist = [25.2, 8.6, 58.5]
mydict = {'job': 'programmer', 'age': 45}
mytuple = (5, 'island')

a = Study(name)  # instantiate class

# Print name.
print(a.get_name())

2.  Javascript code #

// Modify gre value.
document.getElementById("gre").innerHTML = "World Cup";

class Car {
    constructor(name, age) {
      this.name = name;
      this.age= age;
    }
}

/*
Multi-line comment.
Define a new Car.
*/    
let myCar1 = new Car("Acura", 2);
const cars = ["toyota", "Bentley", "audi"];
let x = 100 + 50;

let mycomment = "The covid-19 variants.";
let pattern = /[^h]/g;

function get_system(param_x, param_y) {
    return param_x + param_y;
}

3.  PHP code #

variables / strings

<?php
$color = "blue";
echo "My shirt is " . $color . "<br>";
?> 

function

<?php
function welcome_message() {
  echo "Hello world!";
}

welcome_message(); // call the function
?>

class

<?php
class Building {
  // Properties
  public $name;
  public $color;

  // Methods
  function set_name($name) {
    $this->name = $name;
  }
  function get_name() {
    return $this->name;
  }
}
?>

4.  C++ code #

comments / variables

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main() {

    // This is a comment
    int num_experience = 10;

    cout << num_experience;

    /* The code below will print the words Hello World!
    to the screen, and it is amazing */
    cout << "Hello World!";

    return 0;
}

class

#include <string>
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

class MyClass {
    public:
        int num;
        string my_str;
};

int main() {
    MyClass sample;  // Create an object of MyClass

    // Access attributes and set values
    sample.num = 15; 
    sample.my_str = "Some text";

    // Print attribute values
    cout << sample.num << "\n";
    cout << sample.my_str;
    return 0;
}

preprocessor

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

#define PI 3.14159
#define MIN(a,b) (((a)<(b)) ? a : b)

#ifndef NULL
    #define NULL 0
#endif

int main () {
    cout << "Value of PI :" << PI << endl; 

    cout << MIN(2, 6) << endl;

    return 0;
}
