I’m using this theme: https://github.com/mmistakes/minimal-mistakes. It forces all quotes with > to be in italics, and it has a dark theme for code blocks, and it won’t format code words in titles at all. I’d really like the behavior like GitHub and Stack Overflow have: light code theme, quotes are NOT automatically in italics, etc. Anyone know how I can accomplish this? Literally: I just want defaults for these things I think. Do I need to just delete some css or scss somewhere? How do I do it?
In GitHub or Stackoverfow, right click and click Inspect element on a code block. View the CSS on the pre and code elements. Tick and untick them. Copy them to your project.
You can even see the name of the CSS file where the styles come from in that pane. Click it and you’ll see the full file
Check the theme’s documentation, there is a section that covers how to change the syntax highlighting colors. Theme comes with several “skins” to choose from. Solarized light is similar to GitHub, but if you want the exact colors GitHub uses you can replace the base16 Sass variables with their colors.
