I noticed several places in the wiki talking about similar ideas, so I decided to put a page here to point to what I am working on.

I have implemented a simple wrapper around source-highlight. You can find the latest version in git. You must specify highlight_lang=>"foo,bar" in your setup file. where foo and bar are the (source-supported) languages you want to highlight


  • I would like to have a link to the raw source; using will_render() and then copying the file should work.

You might also like to look at the source link todo. -- Will

  • Is there a way to configure the colors used by source-highlight (other than editing the globally installed "" file)? It would help if I could pass the command arbitrary command-line arguments; then I could configure which config file it's supposed to use. For instance, I'm not a fan of hard-coding the colors into the HTML output. IMHO, css-style formatting should be preferred. All that can be set via the command line ... --Peter

I don't really have time right now, but it should be easy to add, if you look at how src-lang is handled. Patches are welcome :-) --DavidBremner

Note that Will wrote a plugin that uses source-highlight also. It's available here. --Joey

To be honest, Will's version of this looks more polished. I will try his plugin and see if it can just replace mine. --DavidBremner

Updated Now uses keepextension so multiple extensions should be OK
