Error console highlighting

raphink profile image Raphaël Pinson ・1 min read

When composing posts on dev.to, is there a way to dispensary display error messages so they appear as console output, but in red?

I've tried things like:




```error
My error message
```



or

<pre>
<code style="color:red;font-weight:bold">
My error message
</code>
</pre>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

to no avail…

Is there a way to achieve this?

This works on its own but wouldn't be any use if you wanted to embed the message..



```css
some message
```

Good one!

Except some words come out green with CSS:

Failed to retrieve catalog for foo.example.com from puppetserver in environment catalog_diff: Failed to open TCP connection to puppetserver:8140 (No route to host - connect(2) for "puppetserver" port 8140)

Looks like it is still highlighting the valid CSS :) The green looks pretty cool among the red
