Highlight s-exp

Highlight-sexp-mode is a minor mode for GNU/Emacs that highlights the s-exp at the current position.

This this heavily inspired by highlight-parentheses-mode which highlights all parentheses but not the s-exp.

Installation and configuration

(load "path-to-highlight.el")
(require 'highlight-sexp)
(add-hook 'lisp-mode-hook 'highlight-sexp-mode)
(add-hook 'emacs-lisp-mode-hook 'highlight-sexp-mode)


The following variables are available for customization:

  • hl-sexp-background-color
  • hl-sexp-foreground-color
  • hl-sexp-face
You can’t perform that action at this time.
