We need here a better Syntax Highlighter
« on: May 08, 2006, 02:58:40 PM »
the [ code ] Tags just arent engough for a Site with a lot of Code. There should be at least Highlighter for the languages in the Coding School section... what du you think? Is there a "Code Highlighter" out there, which can export its code to BB Code as well?

this is a good idea i think..
with line numbering also.

what i think would be nice would be

[pastebin=php]
blah blah php code
[/pastebin]

or

[pastebin=c++]
blah blah c++ code
[/pastebin]


i think to make a programming section on simplemachine.org forum extensions so you programmers can start helping to write extensions to this forum :)

i'll put it on the todo like i think it's a very good idea.

Maybe it can be done clientside - do you know http://www.dreamproj...m/SyntaxHighlighter/ ? It's one of the best Highlighter I've ever used :-)
