Highlight Plugin

This plugin integrates the famous javascript-library highlight from Ivan Sagalaev and it hightlights your code examples wrapped in <pre> or <code> tags.

There is not much to say about it, because it has no configurations. Just activate the plugin and you are ready to go. The highlight library detects the language automatically.

The plugin integrates a minimal version of Highlight and supports only some common languages. If you miss any language, then download your own package and paste it into the plugin. The pugin is just a simple wrapper.

Write Code with Markdown

You can use the visual editor mode of Typemill to write inline-code and code-blocks in markdown. Just use the <> buttons.

If you want to determine the language of your code manually, then you can use the raw mode and add the language directly after the code block. For example:


This will produce a class like <code class="language-javascript">alert("hello")</code>. The highlight-library will not autodetect your code-language and instead use the defined language from your class.
