Syntax Highlighter with PrismJS


A syntax highlighter using PrismJs.

How To Use

Wrap your pre tag as shown below:

[sh_prismjs_pre class="language-py line-numbers match-braces rainbow-braces" data_line="1,4-5,7" escape_html='escape']
class Implements_Ne:
    ''' A class which implements 
        the __ne__ method '''
    def __ne__( self, other):
        return False

class Not_Implements_Ne:
    ''' A class which does not
        implement the __ne__
        method '''
  • Replace name in language-NAME, by the name of the language that you wish to highlight. For example if the language is python, language-NAME should become language-py .
  • If you wish line numbers to appear, use line-numbers .
  • If you wish braces to be matched when selected use match-braces .
  • If you wish to have rainbow braces use rainbow-braces .
  • If you wish to highlight lines, you can use data_line, so in the example provided, colorize line 1, and colorize lines from 4 to 5, and colorize line 7.
  • If you wish the content of the pre to be escaped, so for example if it contains html tags that you do not wish to be rendered, you can use escape_html=’escape’

For code tags, they also should be wrapped as follows:

[sh_prismjs_code class="language-html" escape_html='escape']<code>tag: <br/></code>[/sh_prismjs_code]

You must use the language-Name option, and you can use the escape_html option.
