Is it possible to write code blocks with syntax highlighting in WordPress?

EDIT: I mean in WordPress posts

I’m using Classic Editor and there doesn’t seem to be even basic support for code blocks to the point that leading white space is even ignored hence cannot even add proper indentation to the code examples.

  1. There used to be a code syntax highlighter plugin for WordPress. Not sure if it’s still maintained.
