Sciter : GUI Application with Golang using HTML/CSS

Update : 25-12-2019

This is the words from Sciter's Web site,

Sciter brings a stack of web technologies to desktop UI development. Web designers and developers can reuse their experience and expertise in creating modern looking desktop applications. Various GUI frameworks offer different UI declaration and styling languages, such as QML and XAML (Microsoft WPF). On the contrary, Sciter allows using time proven, robust, and flexible HTML and CSS for GUI definition and GPU accelerated rendering.
Before using sciter I already tried other alternatives but none of them was satisfactory as an example first i tried andlabs/ui libraryi already have written a post on it. You can read it on post gui programming with golang.  But this library is still under construction and has no support for production apps.
Secondly, I go for electron but the problem was my simple calc like the app was of size 150mb. Which is 15mb of go and other was the electron. 
Before some time I found another alternative, s…

use hilite me for code sharing on your site

I have seen many sites which are sharing the code snippets having a good look. Like having the sublime like format. One example is In my early posts, I was used to putting the code as it as without any formatting other than making the code in italic.

After certain posts, I started to use GitHub gist for sharing. But the gist was not the actually for what I was looking. Though it was quite good for code sharing thing is that it was not giving the look I was wanting.

After searching for certain days I find which is actually I was looking for. A site/service that takes programming language code as input makes the syntax highlight and puts in the box of CSS we have defined.

It actually provides HTML-CSS code which can paste on the blog to share the code with specific highlight and format.

Here is my favorite CSS for the box

( Code for the box below you are seeing is also generated with )

background        :  #111111; 

overflow          :  auto;

width             :  auto;color:#eee; 

font-size         :  19px; 

line-height       :  24px;

background-color  :  #3f3f41;

border            :  solid#2e2e2f;

border-width      :  .1em .1em .1em .8em;

padding           :  .2em .6em;

box-shadow        :  0 10px 50px rgba(0,0,0,0.6);

            /* Generated with help of */

I am using this for code snippets I Post on this blog.
