A component that applies the Black Highlighter theme to your article.

This component will apply a stable version of the Black Highlighter theme, but it might break sometimes as it's updated.

Reporting problems

If you've got a Github account, create an Issue here detailing your problem (whether it's technical, or aesthetic, or whatever).

If you don't have a Github account, or if you'd prefer to discuss your issues with someone directly, either join the #black-highlighter channel on SynIRC, or send a PM to WoedenazWoedenaz or CroquemboucheCroquembouche.

SCP Foundation Logo

A horizontal rule can be created with 5 hyphens "-----" and extends across the whole page if it's not placed inside anything (eg a blockquote). The lines separating sections of this document are horizontal rules.

Titles can be created by putting between one and six plus "+" at the start of the line

This is a tab view.

This is a blockquote, created by putting "> " at the start of each line.

More text

That's a horizontal rule

Nested blockquotes

This is a table
You should know how to make these

The body font is Freight Sans.
The header and title font is Poppins.
The monospace font is Space Mono.


[[iftags +component]]

Pretty self explanatory.
For anyone who really wants the dark sidebar from the O.G. BHL on their articles.
Just add this include AFTER the BHL include:
[[include :scp-wiki:component:bhl-dark-sidebar]]


[[iftags +theme]]

What this is

A bunch of miscellaneous CSS improvements. "Improvements" is subjective. I do not care.

If you're not me, which you're not (I think), then you definitely shouldn't use this theme because it may break, disappear, or change in a way that you don't like at any time; and I promise you that if I want to add something to this I will without asking your permission or checking whether or not it breaks your article. There's a reason this isn't on the main wiki. But other than that go wild.


[[include :topia:cqb:css]]

Using this on a page tagged 'theme'? You'll need to manually stop all these usage instructions from appearing:

[[div style="display: none;"]]
[[include :topia:cqb:css]]


Reasonably-sized footnotes

Stops footnotes from being a million miles wide, so that you can actually read them.

.hovertip { max-width: 400px; }

I'd add a demonstration, but I've included this component to a bunch of other template pages and it messes them up. You'll just have to trust me on this one.

Monospace edit/code

Makes the edit textbox monospace, and also changes all monospace text to Fira Code, the obviously superior monospace font.

    font-family: 'Fira Code';
    src: url('https://raw.githubusercontent.com/tonsky/FiraCode/master/distr/eot/FiraCode-Regular.eot') format('embedded-opentype'),
    url('https://raw.githubusercontent.com/tonsky/FiraCode/master/distr/woff2/FiraCode-Regular.woff2') format('woff2'),
    url('https://raw.githubusercontent.com/tonsky/FiraCode/master/distr/woff/FiraCode-Regular.woff') format('woff'),
    url('https://raw.githubusercontent.com/tonsky/FiraCode/master/distr/ttf/FiraCode-Regular.ttf') format('truetype');
    font-weight: normal;
    font-style: normal;
:root { --mono-font: "Fira Code", Cousine, monospace; }
#edit-page-textarea, .code pre, .code p, .code, tt, .page-source { font-family: var(--mono-font); }
.code pre * { white-space: pre; }
.code *, .pre * { font-feature-settings: unset; }

Teletype backgrounds

Adds a light grey background to <tt> elements ({{text}}).

tt {
  background-color: var(--swatch-something, #f4f4f4);
  font-size: 85%;
  padding: 0.2em 0.4em;
  margin: 0;
  border-radius: 6px;

Fuck off bigfaces

Stops big pictures from appearing when you hover over someone's avatar image, because they're stupid and I hate them.

.avatar-hover { display: none !important; }

Breaky breaky

Break links if I want them to

.nobreak { word-break: break-all; }

Code colours

Add my terminal's code colours as variables

:root {
  --c-bg: #393939;
  --c-syntax: #e0e0e0;
  --c-comment: #999999;
  --c-error: #f2777a;
  --c-value: #f99157;
  --c-symbol: #ffcc66;
  --c-string: #99cc99;
  --c-operator: #66cccc;
  --c-builtin: #70a7df;
  --c-keyword: #cc99cc;
.terminal {
  color: var(--c-syntax);
  background: var(--c-bg);
  border: 0.5rem solid var(--c-comment);
  border-radius: 2rem;

Debug mode

Draw lines around anything inside .debug-mode.

.debug-mode, .debug-mode *, .debug-mode *::before, .debug-mode *::after {
  outline: 1px solid var(--debug-colour, red);
.debug-info {
  position: absolute;
  left: 50%;
  transform: translateX(-50%);
  font-family: 'Fira Code', monospace;
  font-size: 1rem;
  white-space: nowrap;
.debug-info.over { top: -2.5rem; }
.debug-info.under { bottom: -2.5rem; }
.debug-info p { margin: 0; }


This is the Swirling Ashes theme, designed for use by articles set in the Rat's Nest canon.

Made by CroquemboucheCroquembouche and named after faminepulsefaminepulse's description of the skies in Oregon, US in September 2020.

The header goes through a 1 minute-long day/night cycle. Every third night, the fog briefly dissipates.
