This is simple wordpress plugin for highlight.js library. Highlight.js highlights syntax in code examples on blogs, forums and in fact on any web page
So simple to use and does produce pretty colourful and easy to read code blocks. Gave it a 4 as it can be a bit fiddly with line breaks, but really don't let that stop you using it.
Plugin should give an option escape angle brackets with
; when you want to display them literally in XML/HTML markup.
- light weight
- detects most automatically
- can be used with shortcodes - big plus
- can be upgraded to latest highlight js lib from the orig js creator
1. no line numbering
2. no alternative highlight
3. if used for html code that also has some xml style elements there are some formatting issues.
Four Stars because it is good enough for me. No 1, 2 don't need for light weight occasional code that I reference, and no 3 can be formatted as css or someth as a workaround, hence the -1 star.
