Bootstrap 5 Code utilities - examples & tutorial

Documentation and examples for displaying inline and multiline blocks of code with Bootstrap 5.


Inline code

Wrap inline snippets of code with <code>. Be sure to escape HTML angle brackets.

For example, <section> should be wrapped as inline.
        
            
        For example, <code>&lt;section&gt;</code> should be wrapped as inline.
        
        
    

Code blocks

Use <pre>s for multiple lines of code. Once again, be sure to escape any angle brackets in the code for proper rendering. You may optionally add the .pre-scrollable class, which will set a max-height of 340px and provide a y-axis scrollbar.

<p>Sample text here...</p>
                    <p>And another line of sample text here...</p>
                    
        
            
          <pre><code>&lt;p&gt;Sample text here...&lt;/p&gt;
            &lt;p&gt;And another line of sample text here...&lt;/p&gt;
            </code></pre>
        
        
    

Variables

For indicating variables use the <var> tag.

        
            
                      <var>y</var> = <var>m</var><var>x</var> + <var>b</var>
                    
        
    

User input

Use the <kbd> to indicate input that is typically entered via keyboard.

To switch directories, type cd followed by the name of the directory.
To edit settings, press ctrl + ,
        
            
                      To switch directories, type <kbd>cd</kbd> followed by the name of the directory.<br>
                      To edit settings, press <kbd><kbd>ctrl</kbd> + <kbd>,</kbd></kbd>
                    
        
    

Sample output

For indicating sample output from a program use the <samp> tag.

This text is meant to be treated as sample output from a computer program.
        
            
                      <samp>This text is meant to be treated as sample output from a computer program.</samp>
