Absolutely great and easy to use. Would be really cool to see some inline code highlighting though!

Works right out of the box

I have downloaded, installed, and tweaked with at least a dozen different syntax highlighters and code automagical formatters, and this is the only one that has worked immediately after installing with perfect overflow handling and no silly horizontal scrollers.

This plugin is fairly new and I'm glad I got to take it for a test drive. It's in great shape, works very quickly, comes with a variety of color schemes to choose from, and looks great on my tutorials.

If you'd like to see an example of what it looks like right after I installed it, here are some tutorials with different amounts/types of code:

As you can see, the code fits wonderfully to my responsive layout (go ahead and change the browser size to see) and looks great.

I do recommend adding some margin to the bottom of the output box, like this:

.gitEnlighterJS {
	margin-bottom: 26px;

I'm not sure if this is a problem you'll find in your theme, but even if you do, it's an easy CSS tweak.
