  • (2020-03-15) Michael Krailo: After installing all I get is an icon in the upper right corner of the browser and after clicking it, have to login. Then what? How the heck do use this thing? I can create a snipit and that shows up in the list but how do I put it in the darn email? All the code is highlighted in red font anyway so even if it could be pasted into email, looks terrible.
  • (2020-03-12) John Enevoldsen: I wanted to format some SQL but when a comment is in the code it causes the formatting of the remaining SQL to appear in the same comment style...
  • (2019-09-11) David Otterbein: Please remove the notifications or better yet make them an option in the extension menu
  • (2019-01-07) Markus Tauscher: Working great and don't know what I would do without it!
  • (2018-12-06) Christopher Caldwell: I feel compelled to write a review. I tried 5 or 6 other ones that weren't intuitive and syntax highlighted my entire email. This one worked perfectly. Thanks!
  • (2017-12-06) Vittorio Zamparella: Today is working again!
  • (2017-10-26) Guillermo M López: Even if it's not woking right now (solvable), I'm still love it. It's great. @devartis: Error can be fixed easily removing the `onclick` inline event to the button and binding the `click` event with jQ. @users: If for any reason the @devartis do not update the extension soon (and you can't wait), can be manually fixed changing `main.js` file and loading the extension manually. Suggested change: https://gist.github.com/gmolop/2ae9dba98c4116a72961c47ef63c87d4/revisions#diff-7a9076d6d94e62c13d641aa71f19ae8e Info: https://developer.chrome.com/extensions/contentSecurityPolicy Edit: I can fork and maintain the project if you can't or don't want to go on.
  • (2017-10-02) Brian V: I used to love it, but recently it just stopped working. Clicking the { } button does nothing to the text I've highlighted in GMail
  • (2017-09-25) michal s: was ok. not being able to specify language meant results would vary. recently stopped working for me altogether.
  • (2017-03-17) Luke Terheyden: I think it needs a way to specify the language. I tried using it several times, and the highlighting was never right.
  • (2016-07-28) Petar Bojinov: Works like a charm
  • (2016-05-14) Alessio: It does what it is supposed to do. Very useful extension. It just add a formatting button in your editor bar. -Thank you guys for this!
  • (2016-04-21) Bo Stone: Love it! Does exactly what I want
  • (2015-05-10) it used to work well but now it only works from time to time. Sometimes the option is visible, sometimes it's not. Best gmail-extension ever ...if it were reliable
  • (2015-05-08) Justin Davis: Exactly what I wanted it to do, but it's not always available. You have to reload the page if you want to use it.
  • (2015-04-01) Nasos Delveroudis: Seems to be working as expected... most of the time. Ie. the extension button loads the first time I'm trying to compose something, but the next time doesn't. I have to ctrl-F5 to make it reappear.
  • (2015-03-30) Thomas Wölk: Die Erweiterung finde ich recht gelungen und die Code-Formatierung funktioniert perfekt. Leider scheint es ein Problem im Zusammenspiel mit anderen Erweiterung zu geben. Die Erweiterung erscheint einmal in der Formatierungsleiste. Erst nach einem Google Mail Reload ist die Erweiterung wieder für die folgende E‑Mail nutzbar.
  • (2015-03-12) Luke Fender: i'd give it 5 stars if it supports multiple languages at once
  • (2015-02-19) Bremnld Brepston: one of the few times that a chrome extensions is actually 100% exactly what i was looking for! awesome!
  • (2014-11-20) Poli García: Bye bye manual code formatting!!!
