Add highlighting to targeted code snippet
Closed, ResolvedPublic


In the nature theme, the `.viewcode-block:target` - representing a code snippet targeted by an anchor or link - is highlighted with a different background color. This is not the case in Furo at the moment.

My initial attempt at adding highlighting used the following CSS code:

@media screen and (prefers-color-scheme: dark) {
  .viewcode-block:target {
    background-color: #131313;
    border: 1px solid #666;

  .viewcode-block .viewcode-back {
    color: #3facad;

@media screen and (prefers-color-scheme: light) {
  .viewcode-block:target {
    background-color: #e3e3e3;
    border: 1px solid #a0a0a0;

However, this code seems to add incorrect highlighting as indicated in this comment by @Xqt

This task is about finding a better way to do this.
