This application component wraps SyntaxHighlighter by Alex Gorbatchev


Unpack extension into a directory of your choice, the extensions directory would be a good choice.

Add to config/main.php:

'components' => array(
			'syntaxhighlighter' => array(
				'class' => 'ext.JMSyntaxHighlighter.JMSyntaxHighlighter',

If you want a theme other than the default:

'components' => array(
			'syntaxhighlighter' => array(
				'class' => 'ext.JMSyntaxHighlighter.JMSyntaxHighlighter',
				'theme' => 'Django',

You can choose from the following themes: ~~~ Default (the default if none provided) Django Eclipse Emacs FadeToGrey MDUltra Midnight RDark ~~~


Insert this code where you want the syntaxhighlighter script to be:

<?php Yii::app()->syntaxhighlighter->addHighlighter(); ?>

This could be in your main layout, but it's up to you.

The script will highlight any pre tag having the "brush" class: ~~~ [html]

function Hello($world) {
echo 'Hello ' . $world;



Available brushes are: ~~~

_Brush_					:	_Language_
applescript				:	AppleScript
actionscript3 as3		:	AS3
bash shell				:	Bash
coldfusion cf			:	ColdFusion
cpp c					:	Cpp
c# c-sharp csharp		:	CSharp
css						:	Css
delphi pascal			:	Delphi
diff patch pas			:	Diff
erl erlang				:	Erlang
groovy					:	Groovy
java					:	Java
jfx javafx				:	JavaFX
js jscript javascript	:	JScript
perl pl					:	Perl
php						:	Php
text plain				:	Plain
py python				:	Python
ruby rails ror rb		:	Ruby
sass scss				:	Sass
scala					:	Scala
sql						:	Sql
vb vbnet				:	Vb
xml xhtml xslt html		:	Xml

For example, to highlight a bash script, you can use either _bash_ or _shell_:



This component makes use of the SyntaxHighlighter autoload feature, so that only the brushes used are actually loaded into the page.


TinyMCE is great, but it does not want to leave the <pre> tags alone! Don't worry, there's a solution to this problem: Grab and install the Wysiwyg Pre Element Fix and enjoy! :) Just in case: the Pre Element Fix has been attached to this page as well.
