Adds a context menu that provides the ability to add syntax hightlighting to code blocks contained in the page.

Image from store Syntax Highlight Code Blocks
Description from store Some blogs/websites just put snippets of code inside of a pre > code block without syntax highlighting. This is alright, but for developers reading the code, it would be helpful if it actually included syntax highlighting. This extension, on activation via the context menu, finds all pre > code blocks an highlights them with highlight.js (https://highlightjs.org/). Icons from Simple Icon (http://simpleicon.com/code-optimization.html) and Iconspedia (http://www.iconspedia.com/icon/source-code-icon-22943.html) - Version 1.4 adds support for converting multiline pres (w/no code block) - Version 1.3 adds support for msdn.microsoft.com magazine code snippets - Version 1.2 adds support for msdn.microsoft.com library simple code snippets

  • (2016-12-13) Rodrigo Motta: Cold have an option to choose the language to do the Syntax Highlight.
  • (2016-05-14) ka pun: How do I use?
  • (2016-04-27) Brian Hayes: The color schemes are so bland that you might as well not even use the extension at all. The point to syntax highlighting is to be able to quickly and easily interpret code. Two or three colors that lack any real differentiation on a background that doesn't even help those colors to stand out in the first place doesn't make for easy to view code.
  • (2015-03-11) Vinícius Campitelli: I really like it! But it would be real nice if there was an option to automatically highlight all code blocks without having to manually enable it in the context menu. Other color schemes would be pretty cool too =D
