Introduction

You know all of those code screenshots you see on Twitter? Though the code's usually impressive, we saw room for improvement in the aesthetic department. Carbon makes it easy to create and share beautiful images of your source code. So what are you waiting for? Go impress all of your followers with your newfound design prowess.

Carbon example

Features

  • Customization. Customize things like your image's syntax theme, window style, and more
  • Share quickly. Save your image or a link with one click
  • Import from GitHub gist. Simply append a GitHub gist id to the url

Usage

Import

There are a few different ways to import code into Carbon:

  • Drop a file onto the editor
  • Append a GitHub gist id to the url (e.g. carbon.now.sh/GIST_ID_HERE)
  • Paste your code directly

Customization

Once you've got all of your code into Carbon, you can customize your image by changing the syntax theme, background color, window theme, or padding.

Export/Sharing

After you've customized your image you can either Tweet a link to the image, or save it directly.

If you use the 'Tweet' button, Carbon will automatically make your image accessible. However, if you want to manually tweet your image, please check out how to make your Twitter images accessible.

If you include a Carbon image in a post, the source code will be invisible for assistive technology, it will not be possible to enlarge it or copy it, etc. Please, think about adding another element with the source code as text, like an HTML Details Element below the image.

Installing Carbon for Desktop (Offline)

If you are using Google Chrome, or another browser that supports Progressive Web Apps, you can install Carbon for use offline by:

  1. Visiting https://carbon.now.sh
  2. Clicking your browser's settings menu
  3. Clicking "Install Carbon..."
