Installation Instructions

Craig Campbells rainbow.js on GitHub looks dead. Will you maintain a new ‘official’ fork now?

Short answer: No. I forked ccampell/rainbow to get an issue fixed.
As soon as Craig is finding time to maintain rainbow.js again I will switch back to the original code.

I found a bug. Where should I post it?

Depends. If you can break it down to the JavaScript core it would be best placed in the Rainbow Repository (which is not mine).

Everything else can either go into the Support forum, or in the WP-Rainbow Repo.

I’d like to suggest a feature. Where should I post it?

I personally prefer GitHub. The plugin code is here: GitHub
(See above as well.)

I want to use the latest files. How can I do this?

Use the GitHub Repo rather than the WordPress Plugin. Do as follows:
1. If you haven’t done so: Install git
2. in the console cd into Your ‘wp-content/plugins’ directory
3. type ‘git clone git@github.com:mcguffin/wp-rainbow-hilite.git’
4. If you want to update to the latest files (be careful, might be untested on Your WP-Version) type ‘git pull’.

I found a bug and fixed it. How can I let You know?

Either post it on the GitHub-repo or—if you cloned the repository—send me a pull request.

Reviews

Works perfectly

As developer I need to post code snippets from time to time and this plugin helps me to highlight the code nicely. Without a large overhead this plugin only enqueues style and js, which is nice to reduce the load.

Thx 🙂
