Configure

Language Aliases

Sometimes one of the languages you want to highlight isn't available. In which case, you'd probably want to add an alias for it to a language that is similar. To do this, you'll want to add something like the following to your docpad configuration file.

plugins:
    highlightjs:
        aliases:
            missinglanguage: 'alternativelanguage'

You can find a list of languages that are supported via the Highlight.js source tree.

Replacing Tabs

By default, we replace tabs with 4 spaces. This can be changed by changing the replaceTab configuration option:

plugins:
    highlightjs:
        replaceTab: null  # keep tabs

Transforms

You can apply transformations to code blocks before they are highlighted by using the transforms configuration option. It accepts an array of functions or arrays.

plugins:
    highlightjs:
        transforms: [
            # Remove extra indentation from the code block
            # Requires: http://balupton.com/project/bal-util
            (source, language) ->
                require('bal-util').removeIndentation(source)  if language in ['bash','coffeescript']

            # Replace "(C)" with "&copy;"
            (source) -> source.replace /\(C\)/gm, '&copy;'
        ]

Class Name

You can customise the css classname that is added by adjusting the className configuration option, defaults to highlight

plugins:
    highlightjs:
        className: 'blah'
