Add-On Type(s)



Syntax highlight ExpressionEngine code on your pages from within Wygwam.

This extension adds the ability to highlight code with SyntaxHighlighter from within Wygwam.

It adds a button to your Wygwam toolbar. Clicking the button will open a CKeditor dialog window for the (slightly modified) CKEditor SyntaxHighlighter plugin. From there, you’ll be able to select “EE/XML/XHTML” as the language and then enter the code you would like to be syntax highlighted.

Included in the download is a ExpressionEngine javascript brush for SyntaxHighlighter, which will syntax highlight the code on your pages.

The colors of the highlighted code can be changed with CSS easily.

This is really great! It does what it says, and integrates nicely with Wygwam!
