How do I write in color?

Indeed, the colors, it is here a section in its own right, because all the colors are done differently. Here is a summary of the colors with the syntax in parentheses:

  • Red : Diff (- …) ; css([…]); c (#…); python (@…);
  • Orange : fix; apache (no dashes);
  • Green : diff (+…); css(”…);
  • Turquoise: bash(”…); json(”…);
  • Blue : ini([…]); css(….); apache (<…);
  • Grey : apache (#…); python (#…);

The simplest way to use each color is explained below. If you want to look for more colors, feel free to have a look at the site of the programming language manager used by Discord. If you find new colors or an easier way, please feel free to add them in the comments!

How to make a spoiler on discord (hide a word)?

  • Simply set || on either side of the text.

Ex : ||I am hidden!|| Not me...

The image appears by clicking on the spoiler.

How to cross out text / cross out a word on Discord?

To cross out text :

  • use ~~ on either side of the text.

Example : ~~Strikethrough~~, Not strikethrough
Strikethrough text

Next, the mixes!

And yes, with Discord, you can make mixtures, ie a text in bold and underlined, Where italic and strikethrough. Or even, if you're brave, a bold, italic, underline, strikethrough, and spoiler text! (spoiler can't be done here…) with ||___***~~the total!~~***___||.

Next, the code blocks on Discord :

There are 2 ways to create a code block:

  1. Online with text before, `code`, text after
  2. As a whole, with text before, ```code```, text after

To share code, it is advisable to use technique 2, technique 1 is most often used to highlight text, or to share a command, a function, etc.

Others :

  1. Hello good night
    Is it normal that I have to put an arrow like this "<" to be able to write in blue because if I don't put the arrow it will write in yellow
    Thank you for your reply

  2. Is there any way to hide the parameters that define the colors? like to write in red for example you have to show the – in front of diff for the syntax but I don't want you to see the dash, just the message in red

  3. Hi there

    I may be asking a stupid question but can we do it on the phone? Or is it just PC?
    Because personally I can't do it on the phone, I'm sure I'm doing it wrong
    Thank you for your reply ^^

  4. Hi,
    Is there a way to write in color on a smartphone?
    I think you should be able to do the command lines directly via your smartphone (I haven't tried it) but when I do them on PC, it works and when I put myself on a smartphone there is no color ;(

  5. Hi Hi recently Discord did an update it changed quite a bit in terms of color blocks
    in fix we are more on yellow-orange but on pale blue

    And in any case thank you for your site it helped me a lot and I come back to it when I have doubts
