Is it possible to generate highlighted fenced code blocks using the --gfm option and have it parse syntax highlighting?

I noticed man marked mentioning nothing about --highlight option. I did install highlight.js using npm so maybe it is possible somehow?

There's no --highlight option, you need to write some code to make it,
You can also try out my repo https://github.com/chemzqm/marked it make use of highlight.js by default,
and you could disable highlight by option --no-color

@chjj Unless there's a different answer than "you need to write some code", this should just be closed.

I was thinking about what if you could provide options in a javascript file, that way you could write some code but still use the cli. You could do something like:

options.js

var highlight = require("highlight.js");

module.exports = {
  highlight: function(){
    return ...
  }
};

cli
